Did you know that there are 3 bays at Coolum Beach? Most people know about 1st & 2nd Bay but until recently 3rd Bay was a secret that only the local knew about. That has all changed recently when the council put in a staircase running from the bush track down the steep terrain to Third Bay.
The stairs are located off the Foreshore Trail which starts at the carpark opposite “The Point” resort at Point Arkwright and follows the cliffs south through the nature reserve all the way to Point Arkwright picnic area.
The Bays are great places to explore the pristine beaches, rock pools and they are very popular with surfers, rock fishing and spear fishing.
