This is a lovely open beach great for walking, jogging swimming and surfing if the waves are good. The beach is patrolled.

Beautiful beach only a short pathway from resort. Lifesavers & flagged areas for safe swimming and lovely for long walks. Get up early & take a beautiful sunrise photo, it's worth it

We normally stay at Coolum, but decided to try Marcoola. As the population is less, there is more of the beach to yourself...

Quiet beach with great lifeguards. Love it! Can be a little rough like today, best to swim between the flags. There's a group of shops nearby where you can grab a coffee and a bite to eat. Friday night there are food markets in Marcoola...More

Marcoola is perfect if you want your own space on the beach. Unlike Noosa or even Coolum beach which has too many crowds and tourists for my liking , however these places can be accessed quiet easily from Marcoola.

Quite beach with patrolled area. Beach stretches out in both directions and the surf is great for some family fun.
