I live on the Gold Coast with some of the best beaches in the world, which is difficult when I travel as my expectations are high. I found Noosa Main Beach to be average, poor parking, limited facilities and not the cleanest beach I have been on. To sun bathe it is good, however, for anything else its just a... More

This is a lovely inviting clean beach , warm sea and sand. But where is the shade??? As tourists to this beach there is little shade or umbrellas to hide from the sun when it gets to much. What little shade there is is quickly taken. Could the town council of Noosa please invest in some beautiful thatched umbrellas. Or... More

Having travelled all over the world and visited so many amazing beaches, it always makes my heart melt returning to Noosa Main Beach. It's obviously a lot busier than it used to be, but it's still breath taking.

I have never seen this beach look bad. It's a great family beach. Plenty of beach and trees and grass to lie on and under.

Noosa main beach is a great beach, lots of people but not too crowded. Life guards are very visible and helpful Very easy to access. Only negative was blue bottles and stingers on some of the days.

Popular beach for swimming, surfing or sunbaking. Remember to apply 50+ sunscreen as we saw many people burned from the harsh Queensland sun!! Great place to relax for a few hours, grab a coffee and people watch. Surf lifesaving Club do a great job keeping people safe, and a good place for a reasonably priced meal.

This beach is patrolled by Lifesavers, the sand is clean, the waves little more than ripples most of the time - but as always on Aussie beaches - the dictum is 'swim between the flags' and slap on the sunscreen and a hat, drink plenty of water and you have the recipe for a perfect family outing - especially if...

You feel safe in the water knowing there are life savers there. They are very approachable and when our son got a slight sting the life guards were very very helpful thanks guys.

The beach is ideal for children, as the water is fairly. Calm, there are lifesavers on duty to help if anyone gets into difficulty. There are shops and great restaurants, and surf club very close by. It is an ideal spot for singles, couples or families. I can thoroughly recommend it.
