Coast beaches among world's best

NOOSA and Mooloolaba have been named on a list of the top 10 beaches in the world.

The poll, conducted by TripAdvisor, the world's largest travel site, was part of its inaugural Best Beach awards.

In a timely boost for Sunshine Coast tourism, Noosa was voted the third best beach in the world and Mooloolaba was named as tenth.

Sunshine Coast Destination Ltd interim CEO Ian Kean said the Coast should be proud to claim two of the winners for our region.

"These awards recognise the most popular beaches as decided by millions of TripAdvisor travellers," Mr Kean said.

You wouldn't have got an argument about the rankings from a host of international visitors to the Coast yesterday, despite intermittent showers.
