Great family beach, close to the local Surf Life Saving Club... The nearby public car park is massive and well positioned to the shops, beach and playground. The playground has a couple of swings and two slides, climbing net.

Heading through Coolum when I saw a turnoff and took it. We came across a wonderful boardwalk with lookout and a small car park. There is several seating areas and a shelter with artistic displays.
