Cotton Tree Beach, Swimming & Dog-Friendly Area, Maroochydore QLD

One of the best things about this swimming beach is that its clear waters are so pristine. The entire area is so well-maintained, which is why it’s ideal for families, even with young kids. Many exciting water sports can be enjoyed here too. Their beach is also dog friendly, so feel free to bring along your canine friend, provided they are on a leash.

A popular activity here is hiring a boat that can take you to Pinchusion Island, located at the mouth of the Maroochy River. It features a majestic rock formation that is popular for the fishing around it and its unique ability to seem like it changes positions depending on the tide.

Cotton Tree Beach is close by to many attractions and fun things to do. Cotton Tree Parade, the main street in town, is lined with luxurious apartments and chic cafes. The Esplanade also has several restaurants and bars. If you are travelling with kids, the SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast Aquarium is recommended for the breathtaking variety of sea animals that live here. Take the kids to get up close and personal with them through incredible aquariums.

Who wouldn’t want to spend at least a night or more with a destination as beautiful as this? Luckily, there are accommodation choices for all budgets here. Caravan parks and camps are a popular way to travel on a budget. The Cotton Tree Holiday Park is near the beach and provides visitors with direct access to the river and Maroochydore Beach. Alex Beach Cabins and Tourist Park are other great options.

Cotton Tree Beach is simply a stunning destination in the Sunshine Coast that should not be missed.
