IF you are holidaying over summer on the Sunshine Coast, make sure you  pick up a free copy of Coast Life magazine, an essential guide to our beautiful coastline.

Jam packed full of all the fun and natural attractions that you must check out this festive season, it also has a comprehensive listing of the beaches that are patrolled and when, so that you can enjoy the surf and sand safely with your family these holidays.

And who doesn't love a market under the moonlight? There is a list of the markets on offer at night time and during the day, along with a calendar of all the important events happening on the Coast, including ringing in the New Year at Mooloolaba on December 31.

You'll also find some of the places where kids eat free, and all your important emergency and hospital phone numbers to put your mind at ease, plus much, much more.

Pick up your copy of Coast Life magazine, available from this Friday at one of the many resorts, cafes and tourist information centres scattered across the Coast.  Or pick up your copy from reception at the Sunshine Coast Daily office.

Have a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year with your family these summer holidays on the glorious Sunshine Coast.
