A fantastic short boardwalk to the beach with exceptional views back towards Mount Coolum.
This highly trafficked walk starts at the car park on Breezeway Street in Coolum.
The walk involves a wooden boardwalk through paperbark trees and other native flora to a long stretch of open beach between Yaroomba and Marcoola.
The view back to Mount Coolum is spectacular, especially in the afternoon light.
While there is not a lot else on the path, the views are fantastic, and a walk along the beach could easily be added to make the journey even more worthwhile.
