Always busy but everything nice and handy - swim between the flags, only when lifesavers are on duty

Easy to have a swim every morning when your hotel is so close. We were at BreakFree Morrocan, so we could even see our mates on the beach from our 21st floor unit. Water was great and the sun was hot.

Travelled far and wide, but this beach is the jewel in the crown. Warm, clear water with plenty of space to swim. The white sand is clean and soft. Can't beat it.

Amazing.

This being our first interstate trip since the dreaded C word we couldn’t have been happier.

Morning walks on the beach admiring all the cute dogs to get a coffee. Evening walks down the Esplanade listening to the waves.

Full of romance and relaxation for our little weekend away

For a very populated and busy beach i was surprised how clean the beach was, no rubbish, plenty of room to relax and multiple flags to swim between , Showers and toilets clean

Lovely beach to relax, clean and well patrolled by lifeguards. Has a market three nights a week. Safe to walk around

It is a much better experience if you choose a less 'popular' beach where there will still be lifeguards but without the crowds or the drunk idiots. The Gold Coast is kind of like South-East Queensland's tacky tourist spot so, it attracts a lot of young adults who aren't necessarily the nicest age group to share your holiday with. Try Burleigh Heads, Mermaid Waters or my personal favourite (Tallebudgera Creek). Whatever you do, DO NOT go to the Gold Coast in the final week of November, typically between the 20th to 30th of November depending on when the days fall. This is 'Schoolies week' where recent high school graduates from all over Queensland gather at the Gold Coast for a week of drinking and partying.
