If you like high quality fish and chips, it doesn't get any fresher than what comes from Mooloolaba Fish Market. You can choose your piece of fish and how you like it cooked, or buy some raw and bring it back if you feel like cooking. 20 min drive, worth the trip.

This place is excellent for a meal out. Gets super busy, and you can't book, so best to go around 5pm/6pm rather than later, you may still line up but it does move so it's worth it. At Mooloolaba Wharf, 20 min drive. Fantastic modern Asian.

Local Takeouts (Within Walking Distance)

All within 10 min walk, sometimes you just want something easy and quick. Most have a venue you can sit down at, or you may just want to pick it up and bring it back to eat on your deck. Unsure of delivery options - call the restaurants to check.

Yes you can dine here in the bistro, but you can also just grab a drink at the bar and still get amazing views at reasonable surf club prices. Don't expect fancy top shelf spirits, but still has reasonable options. 5 min walk.

Beaches

The local beach is one of the best on the coast. We can say that as we've only been here since the end of 2020 so are not biased to any particular beach, but it's patrolled, has good surf, great swimming and boogyboarding (as long as you like waves). Best part is you can walk out the door and be on the sand in 4 minutes, hard to get more convenient than that!

Mooloolaba has a great beach, has some volleyball courts, surf club, patrolled beach. Always smaller waves than Coolum (more protected), but a great spot for the day and lots of food / drink options nearby so you can spend all day/evening there if you like. 20 min drive.

Well, what can I say? People travel across the globe to get to this beach. That means it's always busy, but it is stunning! Key advice is to get there very early, as parking is pretty challenging if you leave it too late. Such a gorgeous location early in the morning or at sunset. Very few waves, so great for those who like calmer waters. And so many great drinking, eating places for breakfast, lunch or dinner there.
