If you’re heading to the sunshine coast and looking for a beach that’s dog friendly I would suggest Alexandra Headlands. It sits between Mooloolabah and Maroochydore and ticked all the things on my ‘required at a beach’ list. It has a patrolled swimming area, intriguing rock pools, is close by to sweet coffee shops and has amazing soft sand. It is a popular surfing beach however it isn’t as consumed with sunbakers as Mooloolabah is. This meant we could be a little more carefree about Jed sprinting up and down the beach. Make sure you check out the rock pools some of them are deep enough to sit in like a spa – this is how we spent the majority of the day. Below are a few pictures of our trip for you!
