With a sprawling coastline of picturesque beaches that each offer their own unique atmosphere, it can be hard to choose which beach to enjoy first on the Gold Coast. To help you on your way, here are just some of the best beaches the Gold Coast has to offer, all located moments away from Burleigh on the Beach.
Surfers Paradise Beach
For tourist attractions and a booming holiday atmosphere, Surfers Paradise Beach is the beach for you. Beachfront markets, family-friendly attractions, live entertainment, beach-sports, and bustling shopping spots - Surfers Paradise has it all. It’s the beach that put the Gold Coast on the map, and it’s well worth experiencing during your stay on the Gold Coast.
Neighbouring Surfers Paradise Beach but offering a more relaxing vibe is Main Beach, a lengthy beach that almost touches upon South Stradbroke Island. With such a long stretch of white sand and coastline, Main Beach is a great choice for walkers, joggers, and cyclists, and offers Sea World, Marina Mirage, and Tedder Avenue to enjoy at the same time.
Broadbeach, or Kurrawa Beach as it’s known amongst locals, is a popular beach amongst tourists that offers ample golden sand just a stone’s throw away from high-rise hotels, shopping centres, and world-class eateries. For those that want to stop at the beach before shopping and dining, Kurrawa Beach is your best choice, where Oasis Shopping Centre, Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, and The Star Gold Coast wait within walking distance.
Located in Currumbin and part of the Southern Gold Coast, Palm Beach is a beach that offers scenic views and hours of relaxation.

Coolangatta Beach/Rainbow Bay
