Shopping along Mooloolaba esplanade
While Mooloolaba beach is epic, have you ever had a massage in a salt cave, or created an artistic masterpiece over a glass of wine? There's plenty to see and do in Mooloolaba beyond the beach, including breathing in salt air of a different kind.
Shop and dine along the Esplanade
From fries served Amsterdam style in white cones, to the hip bars and boutique dress shops, Mooloolaba punches above its weight as a destination buzzing with places to have a drink and take a bite in between some solid retail therapy.
Get going with a coffee from one of the many umbrella-lined cafes along the Esplanade before hitting the shops. Here, you’ll find everything from jewellery, shoes, and resort wear to award-winning Italian and Asian fusion restaurants and plenty of quirky cafes or bars to refuel in before hitting the diverse retail strip some more.
Cruise along the coastal walk to the Spit
Mooloolaba Foreshore Boardwalk
Whether biking, walking or jogging, checking out the coastal pathway from Mooloolaba Esplanade to The Spit is a must.
Having undergone a recent renovation, explore the two-metre-wide, trail boardwalk section winding through a diverse range of vegetation directly behind the dunes.
With many entry points to the beach nestled between the pandanus and sheoak trees (casuarina), take your time checking out the surf along the way. At the end of the point, you’ll be able to see if anyone’s caught a fish and watch the various boats, kayaks, yachts and other marine craft make their way into the marina just metres away from you. #ahtheserenity

Restore and revive at Salt Caves Mooloolaba
Sea breezes are one thing, but have you ever immersed yourself in the remarkable properties of a salt cave for some salt therapy?
