If the name does not already allude to beautiful sunny days on the beach; Sunshine Beach is a gorgeous little town worth spending some time. Home to a white sandy shoreline fringed with pandanus trees, the choice of surf breaks nearby makes it a hotspot for all types of travellers. With many beachfront resorts and accommodation options along with restaurant and bars, it combines all of the elements for the ultimate holiday. Overlooking the water is the Sunshine Beach Surf Club, which links directly onto the shore.
The Sunshine Beach stairs sit in the north and showcase views across the sea and the shoreline. The beach links straight on to Noosa National Park. Stroll along the headland, for about two and a half hour walk, eventually leading you to Noosa Heads.
Stay in Sunshine Beach for a quiet escape to enjoy the very best of nature.
Nestled at the south end of Noosa National Park sits Sunshine Beach, a small, good-vibes-only suburb of Noosa that spills out to a long, 3km stretch of white sand beach. Come for the surf, but stay for an extended coffee break and get ready to embrace the slow life.
For surfers, Sunshine Beach is a little secret with plenty of beach breaks and minimal crowds that almost guarantee you’ll catch a wave in the right conditions (best at high tide). The beaches in this area are patrolled, keeping peace of mind in tact when you go for a surf or swim, but do keep in mind rips can be strong within the area. For those that like to fish, the shoreline offers deep longshore troughs for the perfect cast.
Sunshine Beach is an access point for the Noosa Coastal Track in Noosa National Park. With a steep staircase, get ready to feel the burn as you hike up to the top to enjoy the cliffs of the park and continue onwards to Alexandria Bay, or head all the way to Noosa. Buses provide a shuttle between Noosa and Sunshine Beach regularly, which you can find at the Sunshine Beach Surf Club.
After a morning spent by the water, explore the shops located on Duke Street. Head to Costa Noosa for freshly roasted coffee, queue in the state of bliss, as you sip your latte with your favourite book in hand. Pop into artisanal shops, boutiques, and surf-catered stores along the way. For a leisure afternoon, pick up some fresh goods at the bakery, deli, or general store and head back down to the shores of Sunshine Beach for a picnic.
Spend the evening watching expansive views the Pacific with an ice cold beer in hand at the Sunshine Beach Surf Club’s beer garden. For dinner, join Masterchef Australia runner-up Matt Sinclair at his crowd favourite restaurant, Sum Yung Guys for a mouth-watering dining experience. Tucked away from the noise of Noosa, Sunshine Beach is a cup of respite for the soul, with an effortless style you’re bound to be charmed by its spell.
At Sum Yung Guys we have not only designed the menu, but also the dining room to highlight our spirit and passion for Asian cuisine and culture. The food is an expression of everything we have come to love about the region, the cocktails have been developed to compliment.

The dining room has been styled to capture the personalities of the 4 partners that share this dream; it has a warmth and energy that resembles the food we put on the plate. Our dream is not only to have our food and beverages represent our passion for excellence, but also have our service exceed anyone’s expectations in a casual environment.
