You’ll find delightful Castaways Beach nestled between Sunrise and Peregian Beach, just 30 minutes from the Sunshine Coast airport. Relaxed, local vibe. Castaways has a stack of picturesque walking trails and is home to a koalas and kangaroos and the surf break is favoured by local surfers for its easy access and consistent, good quality waves. Castaways is a very secluded beach which is part of its quiet charm. Its golden sands are backed by bushland, national parks and some residential housing. There’s no esplanade, cafés or fast food outlets within walking distance so grab some picnic supplies from nearby villages of Peregian or Sunrise Beach if you plan to make a day of it. Pet friendly Note: this beach is not patrolled.
