Short walk from Coolangatta Beach. Rest area view point along the way where you can sit and relax and take in the view of the Surfers Paradise skyline. Pizza Hut or Surf Club for meals once there.

Lots of beach. Very protected from wind. Patrolled area to swim. Water is crystal clear with a nice surf break further south. For the avid surfers head to Greenmount or Duranbah to test your skills

The beach seemed to go on forever. We were fortunate with perfect weather of 24 degrees. My digital camera was working overtime. Got some lovely photos. One place not to miss is Point Danger, fantastic at sunset!!

Personally I don't like to stay in Surfers Paradise as much, it's way too over-crowded and touristy and like Andrew said, the beach is just average anyway. Kirra is much nicer. Also, just to throw it in there, I find... More

If you are not heading to Kirra anytime soon, try and find the surf cam for the area or google street view on your search engine. This might give you an idea of what's on offer in the area. From memory, the Kirra lookout... More
