Like every coastal city, the biggest attraction of the Gold Coast is its beautiful beaches. In addition to the white sand and crystal-clear waters, the beaches also have perfect waves for surfers, and the city offers amusement parks, water parks, zoos, bars, restaurants, night clubs, and much more.
For surfers, this is the place to be!
It is in the Coolangatta region where the best beaches are located, with perfect waves for surfing. These beaches include: Kirra, Rainbow Bay, Snapper Rock and Duranbah.
The local infrastructure has developed so much that “Surfers”, as it is known, has become a city in itself. Around fifty years ago, the beach was only a holiday destination for Brisbane-siders, but gradually, it became so popular that it began to attract national and international investments.
Today, Surfers Paradise offers a huge range of quality hotels and restaurants. And when it comes to the night life, the wide range of bars and clubs will please all the party-goers among us.
