Pristine!

Marcoola beach is a lovely pristine stretch of sand, well worth a visit. Well attended by surf patrols.

A popular local beach, long sandy beach and good for families for walking and also for pets providing dog is on a leash , perhaps less so for swimming with the conditions. It is a patrolled beach with a radio room. Close to the surf club several cafes just over the road.

An absolutely beautiful beach!! It's excellent for walking or an early morning jog. Take a bag for the beautiful shells you'll find along the way. The life savers are out early and patrol along the beach. There is easy access near the Surf Club and at various points along the kilometres of beach. However the natural formations of the underwater... More

The beach was so lovely to walk along. It isnt very busy probably due to the airport being near by, but the beach is monitored by life guards who are on the sand to support you. We didnt get to swim as it was way too choppy for our liking but it was worth the walk to a stunning beach.

We came for a dog friendly holiday. We were not disappointed, there are numerous stretches of beach that are both on lead and off for the dogs to run.

This is our favourite beach on the Coast. No crowds, lovely clean water, proximity to great places to eat and of course located in beautiful Marcoola

Great beach. Nice and quiet. Excellent swim spot however the airport is extremely close so it can be quite noisy during the day.

Marcoola is a magnificent beach. It is patrolled. I would say though it is a bit rough for swimming....we stay on this beach so walk on it a lot. But we swim at Noosa where the water is calmer.

Love going to the Marcoola beach, it's stunning views and there are no roads or real traffic to deal with. Generally the same life guards are on so it's very friendly. The beach is never too busy with plenty of room for kids to build sand castles or play in the sand, there is often beach crickey in the evenings.
