Bulcock Beach is located in Caloundra which is a town at the southern end of the Sunshine Coast region. It’s roughly a 25 minute drive from the centre of the Sunshine Coast. The easiest way to get there would be to drive, however there are public transport options available. Getting public transport from the Sunshine Coast can be a bit of a challenge. It will take you over an hour and multiple buses so we definitely recommend driving if you can.

What to Expect
Bulcock Beach Caloundra is a small quiet beach with perfect white sand and incredible blue water. There is plenty of free parking around the area as well as picnic tables and BBQ’s. Additionally, there are a variety of places to eat and drink just across the road.
The beach is actually along an opening where an inlet meets the ocean. The water is calm and there are no waves, making it perfect for a relaxing swim.There are only strong currents in the morning and afternoon due to the tides. Although, the currents actually make it more fun as we saw people drifting along. When the tide is going out, you can drift along slowly from one end of the beach to the other. The beach is patrolled so there is always a lifeguard on duty. Those that are confident enough can also try to swim out to the island in the distance.
The water is incredibly blue and you’ll even be able to see different shades because of the sandbanks. This beach was recommended to us by a local in the region and we loved it! We definitely recommend to check this place out for yourself.
Be sure to visit Happy Valley which is close by for a great place to relax and have a picnic.
