There is a village atmosphere feel to Peregian that appeals to those looking for the path less travelled and that feeling of yester year. Peregian is the gateway entrance to the Noosa National Park region of the Sunshine Coast where the natural assets of the area are respected and valued highly there are no fast food places here with local small business providing sustenance to sun kissed traveller .  The vast expanse of white sand stretching south to Coolum can instill a feeling of peace and tranquility sometimes there are only a few people on the beach giving you a feeling of ownership that this sacred spot belongs to only you. So hard to believe with the hustle and bustle of Noosa only a short 15 minute drive north. The beach south of Peregian Beach flags that is framed with the National Park is actually an off the lease dog area that locals take advantage of allowing freedom for the favourite friend to play in the waves. Over the winter months during whale season it is not uncommon to see mutiple whales leaping from the waves just a short distance from the shoreline. Often you can see people skydiving at 14000 ft landing south on the beach of Coolum. In addition to all these wonderful things to do at Peregian it also has a great surf spot just off Pitta Street that calls the surfers to finish work early and sometimes to not just go in at all. 🙂
