Sunshine Coast hotels

Marcoola is a suburb of the Sunshine Coast that is nestled between the Maroochy River and the Pacific Ocean. As a result there are plenty of water activities to be tried out all around Marcoola from kayaking and sailing on the river to surfing some of the Sunshine Coast’s best waves. Marcoola Beach is also one of the coast’s most uncrowded beaches with a wide expanse of fine white sands and the azure waters awaiting you, you could be mistaken for feeling like you are on a deserted island.

Marcoola is nearby one of the Sunshine Coast’s biggest resorts the Novotel Twin waters which boasts world class golfing facilities and a range of other activities for guests and visitors. In recent years Marcoola has undergone a development boom and there are several accommodation choices available. The strip along the David Low Way is still dominated by Surf Air, which is the veteran hotel in the area and has a great bar and restaurant attached.

If you are looking for a central location to make getting around on your Sunshine Coast holiday easy, then this is a great place to base yourself. With Noosa a 20 minute drive to the north and Maroochydore and Mooloolaba a 10 minute drive to the south you are well placed to discover the best of the Sunshine Coast beaches. It is also where the Sunshine Coast regional airport is located, so if you are arriving from interstate by plane, you will not have far to travel to your accommodation.
