Little Cove Beach
Little Cove Beach is relatively small compared to the likes of the Noosa Main Beach but it packs a big punch.
What separates it from the other beaches is that it doesn’t get too overcrowded. Even when it’s considered busy you won’t find yourself struggling to find a spot to lay down and top up on the suntan.
It is also great for families as the water seems to be a lot calmer here. Paddleboarding is popular because of the water and its just a lot more chilled.
Speaking of the water, it would be hard to find any better nearby. It is beautifully clear and inviting, waiting for you to dive in and take a dip.
The sand is golden and makes a great sun tanning bed.
