The Best Beaches on the Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is world renowned for its beaches. So, if you love beaches, the Gold Coast is the perfect destination for you since you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing which beach you want to visit. The team here at Breakers North has compiled this list on the must visit beaches of the Gold Coast.

Surfer’s Paradise

Easily the most famous beach on the Gold Coast, Surfer’s is known for its popularity with surfers, beach front markets and great food options. Surfer’s Paradise beach is the centerpiece in many of the Gold Coast’s signature events like carols on the beach and countless live music shows.

Main Beach

This beach is a great chill out spot. The other neighboring beaches are more popular with surfers now, so you’ll generally find people chilling and going for small swims on this beach. Main beach is usually less crowded than Surfer’s even though they’re very close to each other.

Coolangatta Beach

Coolangatta Beach greets the visitors of the Gold Coast as they touch down on the airport. The beach you see from your plane window while touching down is Coolangatta Beach. Not particularly known for its surfing conditions, but Coolangatta offers excellent swimming environments due to its sheltered nature.

Burleigh Heads Beach

This beach attracts surfers and spectators alike when surfing season begins. It is also massively popular with the locals for barbecues and week end picnics. You are likely to find less tourists on this beach compared to other beaches like Main Beach and if that’s your cup of tea, you know where to head.

As you can see, the Gold Coast has many amazing beaches. So why not make it your next tour destination? When you visit the Gold Coast, you can always rely on Breakers North for your accommodation. We can help you with apartments for rent. We have a variety of apartments including one room apartments, two room apartments, three room apartments and even permanent rentals.

Basic Guidelines to Keep Your Kids Safe on the Beach

Beaches are great for family getaways. If you’re on the Gold Coast, you have access to some of the best beaches in the world like Main Beach and Surfer’s Paradise. Everyone in the family enjoys going to the beach, especially the kids. And why wouldn’t they? Kids get to run around the beach playing all sorts of games, building sandcastles and enjoying themselves in the water. However, it is important to not let them get carried away. Safety should always come first and here are a few tips from Breakers North to make sure your kids are safe on the beach.

Be Alert

When you’re with kids on the beach, always be alert. Sure, you can relax, but never zone out completely. Accidents only take a moment to happen. If you ever leave the premises, make sure you explicitly assign another (known) adult to look after your kids.

Teach Your Kids to Follow Rules

Teach your kids to respect rules and regulations. Make sure they understand the importance of lifeguard instructions, swimming between flags etc.

Learn CPR

Obviously, beaches always have skilled professionals who are trained in CPR or resuscitation. But, in emergencies, even a second could make a massive difference. CPR is an important skill, so it’s better to learn it.


The water isn’t the only issue at the beach. The sun can be pretty dangerous too. Make sure your kids have good quality sunscreen on. Re-apply the sunscreen according to the instructions on the bottle or packaging.

As mentioned before, beaches provide a great opportunity for the family to come together. So why not make a full-blown vacation out of it? If you decide to do that, just give us a call! We’ll be able to arrange your accommodation for you! We can help you with apartments for rent, one bedroom apartments, two bedroom apartments, three bedroom apartments and even permanent rentals!
