Three beaches in Australia's Top 20 in the Trip Advisor Readers Choice Awards? You betcha!
Kings Beach hero
With three beaches featured in Trip Advisor’s Readers’ Choice Top 25 Australian Beaches, you could say the Sunshine Coast knows how to beach. Make sure you put these winning stretches of sand, sea and sunshine on your holiday (sand) bucket list!
Rocketing up the Trip Advisor Top 25 Best Beaches list to number three with a bullet is Noosa Main Beach – and what’s not to love? This idyllic stretch of golden sand and clear blue water is bounded by Australia’s most visited National Park, backed by luxurious beachfront accommodation and a stone’s throw from the fabulous restaurants, cafés and boutiques of Hastings Street. A winning combination in anyone’s book!
A stayer in the Top 10, Mooloolaba, like Noosa Main Beach, is one of few north-facing beaches on Australia’s east coast, ensuring you'll enjoy near perfect conditions all year round. Mooloolaba is acclaimed as the Sunshine Coast’s holiday centre, the place where everyone goes to unwind and be looked after, at one of the safest and most family-friendly surf beaches in Australia. The bustling esplanade boasts an enviable array of award-winning accommodation, restaurants, cafés and boutique shopping and you’re not too far from the Parkyn Parade seafood precinct and SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast.
All hail the King! A newbie to the Trip Advisor Top 20, Kings Beach is renowned for its enchanting rockpools, child-friendly water fountain with its time-delayed surprise spurts of water, an oceanfront saltwater swimming pool (you can float belly up ‘til late into the evening and watch the stars come out), and a gentle beach break with protected swimming areas. A wonderful place to visit at any time of year, the beachfront comes alive in spring to the sounds of the Caloundra Music Festival. Yep, a four day music festival right by the water. See you there!
