Rest & relaxation

The number one choice when it comes to Rest & Relaxation has got to be the beautiful Coolum Beach... 

Coolum Beach

Stretching for 2 killometers, Coolum beach has three different bays! Each providing you with a different feel/vibe...

First Bay


The largest, and most popular of the three. It provides plenty of space, soft white sand, and great Surf! First bay has flags and lifeguards so is family friendly and perfect if you fancy a swim. 


If you're a fan of stunning beach walks, then why not try walking from Coolum to Perigian, or even Noosa if you fancy a challenge!

Second Bay

A beautiful cove that attracts couples, families and surfers, who prefer a more private island feel. On a sunny day in winter, when the water's clear, you will most definitely catch a glimpse of some bottlenose dolphins as they tend to come in quite close in this bay. Boasting outstanding ocean views it provides an ideal location for wedding ceremonies and events.

Third Bay

The most secluded of "The Bays", Third Bay is accessed by a 85 metre trail down through the Yaroomba-Coolum Foreshore Bushland Conservation Reserve. The Third Bay Park has a picnic shelter and off street car park which is located 100 metres north of Bay Terrace. This is an unpatrolled beach. Third Bay is also officially on the Sunshine Coast Council's list of official venues to have a wedding!
