    Beach
    This beach is very different from the beaches I have been to before, where I can feel a sense of comfortable experience, clean environment and white sand, which makes me very memorable. I tried surfing here, and the water temperature was comfortable. The beach was very wide and never felt crowded. We came to this beach with our family, we sunbathed and chatted here, a very relaxing feeling. I will come back here to relax next time!

    Whirlwind 5 day Surfers trip
    We went as a family group of four women, aged 17 to 63. Loved Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Pacific Fair Shopping Mall, The Surf Club coffee shop and last but not least the Elston Restaurant. Chris the manager was most attentive . Also enjoyed the 2 German men ferrying us on their pedal carts.

    An amazing beach
    This beach is so long with lots of flagged patrol areas. We had an amazing evening swimming and watching the passing whales put on a show for us. There are shower and taps at each access and some good clean toilets at some. Top tip, if you're hanging out for a while, find an area with toilets and or a good surf club.

If you love to people watch then this is the place - so much to see and if you’re lucky sometimes this time of year you may even spot a whale or two !
Well patrolled and we always find the lifeguards friendly and informative

They recommend travelling to the Gold Coast April to June, I would agree it was perfect in May, I would personally recommend going outside of the Australian school holidays. This means the many many theme parks are not so busy and you won’t spend all day in queues. The beach was awesome and they have markets at the beach, Wednesday, Friday and saturday evenings.
There is so very very much to do or do just a little. Once you have been you will want to go back for sure. 100% petfec5 family holiday.

The Sand is Exquisite. No other. Beach in the world like it. Not Mauritius,
Not Waimea beach North Honolulu, or Copacabana Beach Rio.

Try Sunshine Coast over Surfers, because Sunshine Coast and Noosa
especially, a more pleasant experience.

A very clean beach right next to the evening street and the hotels. The sand is super fine and kept clean. You can walk as far as the eye can see.
