South end of Maroochydore. You can park your car at alex point and then make your way across the rocks and you'll see a few surfers out and just walk straight out. EASY...If you drive to Alexandra Headland it is the spot off the point known to locals as the bluff. Only fun when there is a bit of swell but still to small to shortboard then you mal or mini mal. Fun shortboarding when it gets to about 6 foot.

It's a good wave for surfers and mals. Pretty good rides on big day the occasional barrels good for a surf anytimes. Holds a good swell and pretty consistant.Just park on the hill and walk down the ramp. You can paddle through the channel but i like to jump off the rocks to the right.
The spot can get crowded but doesn't everywhere these days. Lots and lots of mal riders. Just take off deep and you will get a few waves. The crowd thins out when there is a bit of size.
This spot is pretty good I'd say.Fun wave to mini mal. Not recommended for the gun shortboarders. Stay away if you hate aggro mal riders.
