Where is Marcus Beach?

Located on the picturesque Sunshine Coast, Marcus Beach boasts an unspoiled stretch of sandy shoreline. Surrounded by lush coastal vegetation, this beach is within walking distance of Peregian Beach to the south and the scenic Castaways Beach to the north. The suburb itself is a peaceful residential area.

What to Expect

Visitors to Marcus Beach can expect a laid-back atmosphere and minimal crowds. Unlike its more famous neighbours, this beach remains relatively untouched and quiet, making it ideal for those who prefer a secluded spot to unwind. The beach’s natural beauty, with its golden sands and reliable waves, invites long walks with your pooch, sunbathing, surfing, kite surfing and swimming.

Marcus Beach is all about simplicity and natural charm, so amenities are limited. No lifeguards are on duty, meaning swimming or surfing with caution is essential. Picnic areas, a shower and dog wash are available. There are no toilets, so if you need to go try Castaways Beach car park or Sunrise Beach both have toilet facilities. Additionally, the beach is dog-friendly, allowing your furry friends to join in the fun.

Nearby Facilities

Peregian Beach and Sunshine Beach offer a range of dog-friendly cafes and shops for those looking to explore beyond the beach. Grab a coffee and a treat for your pooch at places like the Hand of Fatima in Peregian Beach or The Deck at Sunshine Beach. These nearby spots allow one to enjoy local flavours and socialise with fellow pet lovers.
