Where to find the best beaches within walking distance of Hastings Street

Congratulations, you made it to Hastings Street. You’ve set down your bags, swapped your sneakers for slides, applied your sunscreen and packed your canvas tote. Finally, it’s time to head to the beach. But where to first?

When you’re visiting somewhere like Noosa, the best recommendations always come from the locals. Here’s ours - with the added bonus of all recommendations being within walking distance.

Noosa Main Beach

You can't visit Noosa without a dip at Noosa Main Beach. No trip is complete without it. Running parallel to Hastings Street, it is one of the few beaches along Australia’s east coast that face north, making it a calm bay for safe swimming and surfing.

Noosa National Park

Start your holiday right with postcard-worthy views from the Noosa National Park. It’s an easy stroll from Hastings Street and once there, you’ll be greeted by coastal walks, picnic spots and scenic beach views as far as the eye can see.

Little Cove

A little detour off the Noosa Main Beach boardwalk is well worth it to discover nearby Little Cove Beach. Grab a towel and set yourself up for a morning by the sea. Don’t forget your sunscreen, and a good book. Maybe an ice-cream.

Noosa Groyne

Right next to Noosa Main Beach you will find Noosa Groyne, a local favourite. If you've got a bit of time up your sleeve (and you're looking for the ultimate holiday stoke) book yourself in for a learn to surf lesson.
