Surfer's Paradise Beach, Surfers Paradise

4.6
With a name like Surfer's 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.

  • One of Australia's most iconic beaches. People come from all over the world to visit. The beach was surprisingly very clean and very soft sand. The beach stretches further than the eye can see with sky rise buildings along the whole length. There were some blue bottle jellyfish on the shore which made for some great photos. These are still poisones though so avoid touching them. Would recommend visiting this beach.
  • Absolutely stunning beach, clean, super accessible and convienent as all food shops are across the road. We were lucky enough to see some of the sand art works on display. Amazing talent!! The beach is peaceful, so many people were there however its not ever crowded. Lifeguards do patrol the beach.
  • Very well kept beach. Beach cleaned each morning. Plenty of places to swim as a lot of life gaurd towers dotted along the beach. Good for swimming surfing or sun bathing.
  • I came to the Gold Coast almost 30 years ago and made it my home. The positive attitude of the people, the opportunities for business and the healthy lifestyle for the family I could only dream about overseas.
  • first time visit to gold coast, had an amazing experience. this beach is amazing, the nightlife is even exciting,👍🏻
