About Gonubie Beach

Gonubie Beach is one of the best secrets of the Sunshine Coast. Access to this beach is along a raised boardwalk leading down to a beautiful tidal pool. The boardwalk is a fantastic lookout spot for watching dolphins and whales as well as surfers and windsurfers.

Gonubie Lagoon is popular with families, providing kids with many hours of fascinating exploration as they discover small fish, shells and other marine creatures.

Situated only 8 km from East London, the coastal village of Gonubie is considered to be a suburb of the city. But the chilled vibe and awesome scenery of Gonubie belies this. Lying on the estuary of the Gonubie River and enjoying a wonderful climate, Gonubie is a small piece of paradise on the Eastern Cape Coast.

I've been coming to Gonubie beach for as long as I can remember and it never disappoints. There are usually lifeguards on duty and towards the tidal pool there is some surfing to be had. The lagoon is wonderful and calm - a fantastic place to muck about. The beach is usually pristine. Many days of fun have been had on the boardwalk and discovering sea life in the rock pools. Best kept secret!
