The Gold Coast is famous for its beautiful beaches, and it’s definitely at the top of our list of things to love about the Gold Coast! So how do we choose which beach to hang out at each day? Well we really are spoilt for choice!
We spend most of our mornings before work, as well as lunch breaks and any spare time we get throughout the day at our local beaches - Palm Beach, Tallebudgera Beach and Burleigh Heads.
On our days off we like to visit some other favourite spots up and down the coast -
The Spit at Main Beach on the northern end of the Gold Coast is a great spot if there’s a northerly wind, with the break wall offering protection from the wind. If you enjoy a walk the Federation Walk at The Spit is a nice easy 3.5km walk. The kiosk at The Spit has lunch, snacks and drinks.
Miami and Nobby’s Beach are just as beautiful as Burleigh but less crowded. Great beaches, lots of cool cafes and restaurants, as well as a great pedestrian/bike track along the foreshore.
Currumbin Alley and Kirra Beach are awesome if you can get there on a quiet day. They can get really crowded on weekends because they are just so beautiful! Great cafes within walking distance of both.
Over into NSW, there are endless kilometres of beautiful beach breaks and headlands along Fingal, Kingscliff, Casuarina and Cabarita. We rarely have a plan when we head south, we just love cruising the coastline and surfing/swimming at different beaches along the way.
If we’ve taken the stand up paddle boards we always stop at the river at Kingscliff for a paddle and swim in the crystal clear water.
There’s a great track along the foreshore of Kingscliff and Casuarina which is popular for bike riding, and plenty of great bush walks with stunning coastal outlooks further down along Cabarita and Hastings Point.
Ok, there are a few other secret spots but you’ll have to go on your own adventures to discover those!
