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.
