Alexandria Bay is unofficially a nude beach but great for a skinny dipping. Note: there are no official
The beach is on the eastern side of Noosa Heads National Park.
Access is from several directs but all include a walk.
Opening Times/Seasons: All day/All Year
Entrance Fee: Free
Facilities Nearby: There are no facilities near the spot. The closest toilets are behind Tea Tree Bay to the west.
Other Activities: There is excellent snorkelling and diving in the area and the national park has some lovely bushwalking trails. All of the bays around the headland to the west are world-class surf breaks.
Other Places of Interest Nearby: For something completely different check out the row of chic boutiques and cafes on Hastings Street in Noosa and then head to the Noosa Arts Theatre for some low-key, cultured evening entertainment with B-Y-O alcohol. Or if food is more your thing then try the Noosa Farmers Market on a Sunday for some down-to-earth fun and honest, genuine, local produce. The Glasshouse Mountains National Park offers several walks of around two hours with the opportunity to circle or summit a number of dramatic volcanic peaks and enjoy far-reaching views. Oh, and don’t forget the Big Pineapple…
Wildlife: Several kinds of coral and sea sponges in the surrounding ocean. Koalas in the forest behind the beach.
Places to Eat: Noosa has a wide variety of places to eat, as does the surrounding area. Our personal favourite is Sunspace Cafe in Doonan which has its own biodynamic veggie garden, small shop selling local, organic produce and crafts, an amazing community atmosphere and lots of workshops and events. It’s well worth the effort of driving out of town and gets you out and exploring the surrounding countryside.
Where to Camp: There are three campgrounds forming Noosa Holiday Parks which are owned by Noosa Council. They are all located close to water and many sites have a bushland feel. If you have 4WD and are looking for more swimming opportunities camp at Booloumba Creek where you can swim both in the creek and below the falls, although this at least an hour and a half’s drive from Noosa.
Other places to Stay: There is lots of accommodation in Noosa itself, and although the area is known for being somewhat pricey it really does give as well as take. The Sunshine Beach end of town is worth checking out as it is quieter, cheaper and still close enough to the action. Alternatively, there are plenty of B&Bs etc in the surrounding area.
