Let’s Go Surfing

There are numerous beach breaks along the length of the beach, with best conditions at high tide on a moderate swell. Beginners are best heading straight out from Coolum Main Beach.

More experienced surfers will be rewarded with a steep take off and long right-handers at Point Perry and Point Arkwright, south of Coolum township. First Bay also provides a sheltered area that escapes the majority of winds and is easily surfable for intermediate and advanced surfers and neighbouring beach. Further south, Yaroomba is sheltered from northerly winds and with the right conditions is a goofy footers dream.
