Coolangatta beach offers great walking, photography, swimming and more. Lifesavers patrol the area.

Right across road from many cafes/ restaurants so plenty of food choices!
Markets set up here once a month with an amazing variety of interesting goods to browse or buy.

Paid parking all along Marine Parade. Large carpark at S end.

Wonderful scenic walks along beachfront.
Plenty of accommodation, shopping , clubs, hotels theatres etc.

Public bus service to Gold Coast or NSW.

The weather was perfect and the sunset was awesome .. a clean beach with some surfers is a real treat to watch . You can walk along the beach feel the wind and inhale great fresh air! You can see large rocks on the beach in black or light brown .

Go to the Southern end - Greenmount Beach - for sheltered swimming. Good body surfing most days. Usually small surf. Patrolled by life guards or surf life saving club. Easy walk on soft sands.
