Mooloolaba Beach

Mooloolaba Beach

Queensland, Sunshine Coast


Fun waves can be found at this safe and sheltered beach for introducing kids and absolute beginners to catching small whitewater waves and their first unbroken (or green) waves (during high tides and small swells).

Wave Type
The sandbars here often form for hundreds of metres along the beach without rips, making for easy and safe learn to surf conditions in the whitewater. The down side to this wide, flat sandbar is that the waves mostly close out and dump quickly onto the shallow sandbar. So stick to the whitewater or practise catching green waves during small swells and high tides.

If the surf is tiny at Mooloolaba, or for progressing surfers who can catch green waves and turn along the wave face, better shaped and bigger waves can be found on the beaches to the north and south, including Alexandra Headland, located a short walk to the north, or around the Kawana Waters Surf Life Saving Club, a short drive to the south.

Along with Main Beach Noosa, Mooloolaba Beach offers the best shelter from big south swells and winds when these spots can be the only options for a surf (again in the whitewater). During north winds and small swells drive down to Kings Beach or Bulcock Beach at Caloundra for some long mellow rides.

Good Wind Direction
Best on South East to North West winds.

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

Hazards
- Rocks
- Rip currents
- Marine life

Have fun surfing Mooloolaba by practising surfing etiquette and surf safety.

Access
The car park is located at the northern end of beach.

Lifeguard Patrolled
Patrolled from September to May on weekends and public holidays - always swim between the red and yellow flags and watch out for plunging (dumping) waves that break in very shallow water.

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

Located at the surf club on the beach.

Closest Shops
Cafes, restaurants, bars, surf shops, boutiques and supermarkets are all found in abundance behind the beach in the popular holiday resort of Mooloolaba.
