The Gold Coast has more than 70km of fantastic beaches and Surfers Paradise is one of the most iconic along this huge stretch of sand.

There’s a huge list of Gold Coast beaches and they are all pretty great for different reasons. Some are particularly good for family outings and others for die hard surfers. Some beaches are preferred for their close proximity to good Surf Clubs with their cheap meals, cool drinks and the safety of the Surf Life Savers.

Professional lifeguards patrol the main beaches all year round and during the summer months the coverage is increased by volunteer surf lifesavers.

Check out this list of Gold Coast beaches along with all the reasons why you might prefer them.
