Family fun in Alexandra Headland

Commonly called 'Alex' by the locals, Alexandra Headland is a popular summer destination that is mostly known for quality waves off the headlands. Though, this coastal community is quickly becoming a favourite for families thanks to its golden sands, patrolled swimming zone and handful of family-friendly hotels.

There is a great selection of Alexandra Headland hotels and holiday rentals available to families visiting the area. What's better is the fact that plenty offer star rated service and reasonable rates. The Alex Seaside Resort is a great option with two bedroom apartments available for larger groups. It is also opposite Alex Beach, making it easy to enjoy Alexandra Headland's best asset.

Waterfront accommodation for all budgets

'Alex' revels in its reputation as being a quality coastal getaway, offering a number of activities that focus on the beach. Picnics, BBQs, fishing, swimming and surfing are all popular pastimes for locals and visitors alike. Even the outdoor skate park – the best on the Sunshine Coast – captures the sound of the waves lapping along the beach.

This love for the water is extended to the accommodation with many hotels offering beachfront locations and stunning ocean panoramas. They also provide plenty of choice when it comes pricing. From the 4.5-star Mirage Alexandra Headland to the Breakfree Alexandra Beach Premier Resort, there is a hotel that is sure to sit in your price range.  

Staying in the surrounds of 'Alex'

Alexandra Headland is one of three top destinations on the Sunshine Coast. Just minutes to the north, Maroochydore draws crowds thanks to its ideal position at the centre of the coast between the ocean and Maroochy River. A great selection of accommodation bolsters its appeal with a mix of boutiques and chain hotels available. This includes the Sebel Maroochydore.

To the south, Mooloolaba enjoys an ideal position between the ocean and the Mooloolah River. Like its neighbours to the north, this coastal town is all about the water with annual yacht races, boardwalks, surfing and patrolled swimming. There is also a large range of hotels positioned along the waterfront, offering many 5-star luxury resorts and comfortable mid-range options.
