Sunshine Beach

Sunrise at Sunshine Beach
 The Sunshine Beach itself is just part of a breathtaking string of more than ten km of beaches. You can literally walk along the beach from where Sunshine Beach starts, all the way to the end at Coolum Beach. On the way you pass Sunrise Beach, Castaways Beach, Marcus Beach and Peregian Beach.
After living in Eumundi for two months, I moved to the Sunshine Beach where I shared an apartment with two of my strawberry picking friends. Only a stone's throw away is the The Sunshine Beach Esplanade, a small strip of restaurants, cafés and shops. Close by is The Sunshine Beach surf club, a great place for Sunday Brunch, with a gorgeous view of the beach and the ocean.

The Peregian Beach community market is every second and fourth sunday morning of the month. After the market, The Peregian Originals concert takes over. The participating artists only playing their own original music. The Originals is unofficially one of the exceptions in Australia where you can enjoy a beer in a public place. Peregian Beach also has a couple of surf shops and cafés, and is the place to go if you're looking for original UGGs.

Coolum Beach is more an industrialized holiday place with huge holiday apartment buildings. It also has a shopping strip and coffee shops to have really expensive breakfast, but is definitely lacking that cozy atmosphere of Peregian and Sunshine Beach.

If you're looking for a more secluded beach in the area, Alexandria Bay in Noosa National Park, (over the hill from Sunshine Beach) is gorgeous. Be aware though, it's unofficially a nudist beach!
