Coolum was previously known for is alternative lifestyle community. This little hamlet just grewup with a late rush of development. So now parking around southern end of Coolum Beach is a bit hectic - especially on weekends. Zip 500 meters North up to Stumers Creek Road for the more mellow end of town.
Coffee Rock formations hold the shape of the beach intact most of the year so the breaks are generally consistant.
Three main areas -
The Beach Breaks between Stumers Creek and Point Perry - Typical Beackbreaks,
Point Perry - Rearly works, and
"Three Bays" Between Point Perry and Point Arkwright - Tidal dependant.
Plenty of hot grommets here at present, unless its dead flat their out there before & after school [and during when its epic]. There is a strong board-riders club but generally they are cool enough to brush localism.
