Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
With a name like Surfers Paradise Beach, you know the waves here have to be pretty good. The town beach for the Gold Coast City suburb of Surfer's Paradise offers 3 km (1.85 mi) of golden sand. Give surfing a shot on the gentle breaks here or ride bigger waves if you're more experienced. This is also one of the most popular places for beach volleyball in Australia--join a social game if you're up for making some local friends. If you're here at night on Wednesday, Friday, or Sunday, shop for crafts and vintage items from more than 100 stalls at the free Beachfront Markets. You can plan Gold Coast trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • A safe beach that is patrolled. Always something to discover.... from Sea Dragons to pippies to Surf Some sand loss but still okay. Love the swell, but still there are waves.  more »
  • A wonderful time of relaxing, fun & food. Although we couldn’t do our cruise or visit family in NSW, we had a wonderful time close to home.  more »
