Castaways Beach in Sunshine Coast is a fairly exposed beach break that is usually a safe bet Works best in offshore winds from the west northwest and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the ideal swell angle is from the southeast. The beach break provides left and right handers. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up.
