Why you'll love your Gold Coast holiday.
The great thing about Australia’s Gold Coast is that it does exactly what it says on the tin, hence why the beaches - or the coast for want of a better word - is a glorious shade of gold. AKA The Gold Coast – they don’t over complicate things in Oz-land.
There’s no limit to the glorious golden beaches that tickle the fringes of Australia’s east coast, with 57 kilometers of shoreline, there’s a little stretch of sand for everybody. Surfers Paradise is without doubt the most populous beach; with a relaxed vibe and gorgeous, gregarious Aussies. Perfect for independent travellers and the young or young at heart, whereas Kurrawa Beach at Broadbeach is a great all-rounder due to its plentiful facilities, including beach volley ball and lifeguards. And then there’s Mermaid Beach; less crowded and a bit more chilled. Families like it here for the picnic tables, playground and safer swimming.
