Beach
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.
