The Sunshine Coast is a holiday makers dream! We have pristine beaches, natural wonders and numerous scenic drives that will take your breath away. For many of our customers who visit our showroom, the Noosa Heads to Coolum drive is always a top favourite.

We certainly know how lucky we are to be less than 20 minutes away from this popular scenic stretch, so continue reading on to find out where you should spend your next cruisy afternoon.

Noosa Heads to Coolum Coastline

The David Low Way stretch is a beautiful, scenic route that offers 60 kilometres of lush green fringes and golden sand views. This is hands down, one of our favourite routes to drive along on the Sunshine Coast because there are many spectacular beaches to visit along the way.

Sunshine Beach - 8 minutes from Noosa Mazda

Sunshine Beach has a very laid-back atmosphere with stylish boutiques, cafes and restaurants. We highly recommend grabbing a coffee or lunch at our favourite cafe called the 'Costa Noosa Espresso.' We stumbled across it earlier in the year and we can't keep away!

Sunrise Beach - 11 minutes from Noosa Mazda

Sunrise beach is also a very cruisy suburb that is lapped by pristine surf and golden sand beaches. Another cafe recommendation we have is 'Chalet & Co.' You can sprawl out in the sun under their patio whilst sipping on a freshly brewed coffee whilst mentally preparing yourself for a hard day ... at the beach. Ha-Ha!

Castaways Beach - 13 minutes from Noosa Mazda

Castaways beach is a beautiful strip that we love visiting because it's not often populated by locals. There aren't any cafe's in this area, so it's best to continue your route to Sunrise Beach or Peregian.

Marcus Beach - 15 minutes from Noosa Mazda

If you have a dog or like being surrounded by them make sure you head to Marcus Beach! It's completely pet-friendly and hot-spot for locals in the afternoon, however, the closes cafe is located in Peregian.

Peregian Beach - 15 minutes from Noosa Mazda

Peregian beach is a little more populated than anywhere else hosting many shops, cafes, restaurants and a park. If you happen to drive into Peregian, we recommend stopping at the 'Le Bon Delice French Patisserie.' They have the MOST delicious European inspired cakes, sweets pastries and bread. Bon Appetit! You can thank us later.

Coolum Beach - 15 minutes from Noosa Mazda

We're saving the best for last, in our opinion! When you drive into Coolum you instantly get that carefree holiday atmosphere accompanied by some great surf! The Coolum Surf Club is perfect if you're looking for waterfront views or check into the 'New Earth Cafe' for a bite to eat.

With ocean views that offer hugging cliffs and little detours into coastal towns, there's no better strip to drive along than the magical Noosa Heads to Coolum route. The Noosa Mazda dealership is only a short distance away from all these incredible destinations.
