As far as I'm concerned, this is the most wonderful region in all of Australia. The long stretch of white sand, the pounding surf, the warm water, the spectacular skyline, the jogging track, the restaurants and bars, the beautiful women, the sunny climate, no flies - who could ask for anything more? Yes, it does get a little crowded in the summer period, but that is par-for-the-course for any beautiful location anywhere in the world. There are some drawbacks that people need to be aware of: - The beach at Surfers is extremely dangerous for children. The undertow when the pounding waves recede, is incredibly strong, making it extremely difficult for kids (and even adults) to keep their feet. Always stay between the flags, and never swim out to deep water. The safest place for children to swim is nearby Southport, which is always calm. - Whilst the climate is ideal most of the year, the weather can often turn ugly. I have been stuck there in hurricane conditions, and it can be quite frightening. When the rain sets in, it is often torrential, and can last for days on end. - You do get a lot of attention-seeking rev-heads on Harleys, rented Lamborghinis and Ferraris hooning up and down the streets of Surfers all hours of the day and night - usually pursued by police cars with wailing sirens. The noise can be deafening. - Due to the balmy nights, and large volume of tourists, the place attracts a lot of homeless people, who sleep on the sidewalks and on the beach.

SURFERS PARADISE BEACH is beautiful. Longest stretch of sand which makes for a fantastic walk at anytime of the day. Please swim between the flags where the LIFE SAVERS are situated as the small waves knock you about even in the shallow. Dont be fooled by its beauty and warmth. You need to take care of yourself and family. Some stingers about here and there. Besides that , on a nice day the beach already has surfers , walkers , runners, sun bathers , everyone making the most of a beautiful environment .. Visited from Melbourne for 4 weeks stay in January 2021 and loved it .....

Fantastic beach to walk on and swim at, under the watchful eyes of the lifeguards on patrol at certain times. Golden sand all along the coastline and a beautiful backdrop of the towring highrises and apartments under a blue sky - delightful.
