Where to stay in Gold Coast

Surfers Paradise

The Gold Coast's adventure playground, hotels in Surfers Paradise put you close to the big theme parks and other family attractions, as well as the nightlife. The nearby beach lives up to its name with world-class surfing (and a few surf schools if it's your first time). Cavill Avenue is one of the top shopping areas on the Gold Coast.


Just south of Surfers Paradise, hotels in Broadbeach let you escape the crowds and the noise, while still having plenty to fill your days. Kurrawa Beach offers safe swimming for families with children, while Mermaid Beach is ideal for beginner surfers. There's more quality shopping at Pacific Fair and the Oasis, and the attractions of Surfers are less than 15 minutes away by car or bus.


If you're looking for some of the best surf conditions in Australia or a relaxing holiday, hotels in Coolangatta at the southern end of the Gold Coast could be the perfect match. Kirra Beach and Snapper Rocks draw surfers from all over the world, while the sheltered beaches are safe for families. If you're flying to the Gold Coast, Coolangatta is right next to the airport.

Just a beautiful stunning city on the beach. If you want that beach feel in a great urban city, this is definitely the place.

I've been to Gold Coast back in 2007 Dec. I felt like I was in Miami south beach, same weather, same atmosphere with lots of high rise modern apartments. The beach was decent.

The Gold Coast is downtown high-rises clashing with an almost endless white sand beach. It's a bit soulless.
