If the pace and people at Surfers starts to overwhelm then visit Coolangatta for a quiter day out. Nice beach with plenty of convenient restaurants.

Beautiful location, clear water, soft sand, down to earth locals. Clost proximity to cafes and surf clubs. Good beach for the family.

I live in Brisbane. 1 hour from the Sunshine Coast, an hour from the Gold Coast, and 2.5 hours from Byron Bay. Needless to say I have seen my fair share of beaches. This is my favourite. The long sand bank leading in to crystal clear water. It is located in a cove protected from rough tide. An absolute dream spot!

Lovely beach, always plenty of space and great for those who detest the hustle and bustle of the Gold Coast to the north. Great swimming and very relaxing...

Coolangatta is the only north facing beach on the coast, meaning it gets more sun and you don't get the afternoon shadows like the beaches up the coast. It's cleaner, less crowded and less touristy. Great place for families, no hassles.
