Swimming

The warm weather and tropical climate are some of the many reasons why tourists from all around the globe eagerly head to Noosa every year. However, all of that walking, playing and baking in the sun can take its toll, and there's no better way to cool down than taking a refreshing swim. Fortunately, Noosa is heaven for swimmers, whether you're a serious athlete or just looking to cool off.

Framed by the stunning coastline, the crystal clear waters of the ocean are too inviting to pass up. The beautiful Noosa main beach is a delightful place for a swim, with gentle waves and lifeguards patrolling all year round, making it ideal for families with children. Venture further to swim at more of Noosa’s exquisite beaches – Sunshine Beach, Sunrise Beach and Peregian Beach all allow swimmers to peacefully glide through the waves without a care in the world, knowing that lifesavers are keeping a watchful eye over the scene.

For those looking for a place to teach the kids to swim or somewhere to train, perhaps the Noosa Aquatic Centre would more appropriate. Enjoy multiple heated outdoor pools surrounded by the charming scenery of Noosa. With lanes and casual areas, swimming lessons, and water-based fitness classes, what more could you want?
