Beach · Nature / Park
Coolangatta Beach, considered the end of the Gold Coast, offers blue waters and a wide stretch of sand, frequented by picnicking locals each day at sunset. This area is family-friendly, safe, and rarely crowded by tourists. You can surf, swim, scuba dive, or simply relax on the warm sand. Lots of cafes and shops dot the beach, and several large restaurants are within walking distance of the sand. Don't miss walking out to the Snapper Rocks, where many Australian and world champion surfers first took to the waves.

  • Beautiful beach, personally I am wary of the swimming. Good for a splash but if you are not a confident swimmer be very careful.  more »
  • Whats not to love. Golden sands clear blue sea. Surfings good if you like to surf. Beautiful location. Bit of a walk down to the sea but plently of space very clean. One of our fave places  more »
