Nice point break. 150 yards to the right of "the corner" is "The Bluff" good rights over rock bottom up to 8 feet in cyclonic conditions. There are a few "Owners" of this spot but not agressive.
To the left of "the Alex corner" are lefts on a sand bar at lower tides. Plenty of beach breaks further left up to Maroochydore.
Free parking along the road that runs along the beach.
Plenty of accomodation.
A few gutses want all the good waves ob bigger days. Small days during the week visitors are generally made welcome by the older blokes.

Beats watchin TV - You've gotto be lucky to get a good wave here. Crowded with Longboards and a few paddleboards too even when its flat.

NO - There are hardly ever sharks at alex in all the 9 years i have been with the surf club we have never had a white pointer only small sharks that live around the rocks

Truth - Alex is a very easy going spot. Great short left into kiddies corner (Rocks)at any time for the daring. Alex and Noosa are usually the last two breaks to hold the big swell. Very forgiving even when big.
