Alexandra Headland

Alexandra Headland

Queensland, Sunshine Coast

The beach break at Alexandra Headland can be excellent for those wanting to practice turning along the wave face on small surf days. It does get really busy here, especially at the rocky point, so make sure you understand and practise surfing etiquette before heading into the line up.

Wave Type
Rights and lefts break over sand with rocks off the point and also exposed coffeerock scattered on the shoreline. At times the beach breaks can close out, so higher tides offer softer, spilling waves with better shape for turning on the wave face.

When the waves are big here kids and absolute beginners will find Mooloolaba Beach for whitewater surfing an easier option (a short walk to the south) or take a drive to the north and check out Noosa's Main Beach.

Good Wind Direction
Best on South West to North West winds with marginal protection from south winds.

Good Swell Direction For Fun Beginner Waves
Small North to East to medium South swells.

- Rocks both off the point and on the shoreline.
- Rip current
- Marine life

Have fun surfing Alexandra Headland by practising surfing etiquette and surf safety.

The car park is located at the southern end of beach beside the surf club.

Lifeguard Patrolled
Patrolled from September to May on weekends and public holidays - always swim between the red and yellow flags.

Beginners & kids are best to surf when Lifeguards are on patrol or with a friend who has decades of surfing experience.

Located at the surf club behind the beach.

Closest Shops
Shops of all kinds are located at the beach resorts of Maroochydore to the north or Mooloolaba to the south.
