King tides have broken across the sand bar north of Pincushion Island in the Maroochy River for the second time in a year, but the Sunshine Coast is cautiously optimistic its sandy beaches will withstand the claws of the raging sea.
The tides are carving sand cliffs at Sunshine Beach and North Shore but the sand shifts are less obvious across other beaches.
Wild waves close beaches
BIG seas and treacherous conditions closed three beaches and caused a string of minor rescues across the Hastings this week.
