1 Yaroomba Beach
Yaroomba 4573, QLD
Yaroomba beach (1543A) begins at Point Arkwright and extends south for just over 1 km. It is backed by residential development. Beside the beach rips there are two strong permanent rips, one against the point and the second against some rocks in the surf 200 m south of the point. The best access is from the car park and lookout on the 20 m high point and a beachfront reserve 1 km south of the point.
This is a long, potentially hazardous beach with persistent rips and strong currents. You should only swim in the surf at the patrolled Marcoola Beach, or under the supervision of the lifeguards at Coolum and Twin Waters resorts. Always check for rips before entering, stay on the attached inner bar and clear of the rip channels and deeper outer trough.
