ALEXANDRA HEADLAND

Get to know
the area

Alexandra Headland is all about relaxing days by the beach. Sitting snug between two lively suburbs, this seaside destination may be a hotspot on the surfing and holiday-maker circuit, but its intimate dining and bar scene, beachside abodes and beautiful coastline have a refreshing low-key vibe that locals relish.

Lifestyle

Smack bang in the middle of Maroochydore and Mooloolaba, Alexandra Headland is both a sun-lover’s paradise and a popular surfing hangout without any fuss. Leaving the foodie and nightlife scene to its neighbours, life in Alexandra Headland revolves around the beach. 

Although this seaside suburb lays claim to the shortest beach in the Maroochy area, the rocky headlands at Alexandra Headland Beach are revered for having some of the best surf in the area. 

Around the surf club, a playground and plenty of green space are a go-to for families, while Alex Skate Park is hands down the best in the region with skaters and BMXers spinning out tricks well into the evening under the park’s floodlights.

Running alongside the beach is Alexandra Parade. A handful of casual cafés, eateries and skateboard and surf shops are nestled in among holiday properties that capitalise on oceanfront views. The local fish and chips shops heave with hungry beach-goers every day of the week, and the surf club offers the best seats in the house. Sitting back off the main street is Nelson Park, a sizeable green space with manicured gardens and a playground. 

Neighbouring the region’s main business hub, Alexandra Headland has everything at its fingertips – major shopping complexes, local markets, waterfront dining, an international airport, well-regarded schools and so much more.

Neighbours

Easy breezy living on the Sunshine Coast, Alexandra Headland is as much a tourist hotspot as it is a local hangout. With plenty of room to go around, this seaside suburb has broad appeal.

Area Features

BEACH LIFE

In Alexandra Headland, it’s not the size of the beach that matters ¬– it’s the size of the swell. The rocky headlands at Alexandra Headland Beach are revered for having some of the best surf in the area. But if nothing else, the stretch of coastline around Alex Corner and The Bluff is a beautiful spot to soak up some impressive views. 

PRIME SPOT

Neighbouring Maroochydore and Mooloolaba, Alexandra Headland laps up the best these two beachside suburbs have to offer: major shopping complexes and water activities to dining and drinking with a view. Then there is the lush hinterland, which is only a short drive inland.

ACTIVE LIFESTYLE

Be it along the coastline or around Nelson Park, the facilities for cyclists and runners are ideal. But the real winners are skaters and bikers who have the run of top-rated Alex Skate Park. Day and night, this skate park has some of the best local talent spinning out tricks.
