Owner description: The three-kilometer strip of golden sand between Surfers Paradise and the Pacific Ocean is Australia's iconic beach, a postcard-perfect locale that conjures up 'paradise' to millions. Throughout the year, our beach welcomes swimmers, joggers, surfers and strollers from around the Gold Coast, around Australia and around the World. There are a few simple things you can do to ensure that your day at Surfers Paradise beach is a safe and happy one. Always swim between the red and yellow flags. If the flags aren't up, it may not safe to swim, so always ask a lifeguard if it's safe to swim if you cannot see the flags. Check for additional beach signage, as this may change every day. Read the safety warnings. Check with a lifeguard about beach and water conditions if you're not sure it's safe. Put your hand up and stay calm if you get in trouble in the water. Stay sun safe: Slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen, slap on a hat, seek shade and slide on sunglasses. Leave valuables at home or in your apartment.

What a beach, sand as far as the eye can see and white horse rollers crashing in. You must visit this iconic beach if visiting the GC and you will see why it got its name.

every time I step on the Surfers Beach I am amazed as how pristine the water is and the length of the beach. Surfers gliding in the water along the way, it runs from The Spit all the way down to Coolangatta. you can walk on it all the way to Miami do a walk around the hill and then continue on the beach. you can take a dip in the sea, just make sure it is between the flags with Lifesavers watching you. then you can continue your walk in the beautiful white sand. lots of lovely things to see along the way and have breakfast in many restaurants and coffee shops along the strip. I can never get enough of it. enjoy

This is the iconic beach of Queensland, and somewhere that is clean and very safe. The surf isn't too dangerous (most of the time) and if you swim between the red and yellow flags you will normally be fine. The area around the beach is wonderful and relaxing, and there are night markets three nights a week
