South of surfers is were the best beaches are on the Gold Coast. Buildings aren't ridiculously tall and the beach had plenty of sand. Always my favourite place in Queensland south of Brisbane.

Another one of the southern end beaches that has so much beauty and activities to offer. Once again very protected from the dumping and open waves of the northern end.

Come here! Wonderful quiet spot. Close to the airport, lovely walking paths, 85% less people than the GC, it's all we could ask for. Food, shopping & pristine beach with views for miles. A gem.

This north facing beach is ideal for the kids. Waves are usually small and manageable for the younger ones.

Spent the morning walking along the sea shore. Really lovely and clean and sand like powder! Had breakfast at dbar and then retreated back to the beach for alovely relaxing few hours reading and whiling away the day. The time punctuated by watching the skydivers descending onto the beach close by. Beach is lovely and clean and ideal for families.

Another wonderfull Queensland beach. Clean squeaky white sand as far as you can see. Mainly locals with a good patrolled area in front of the surf club.

A very nice beach. Waves are a bit inconsistent for body boarding. Plenty of surfers though. Great fun swimming. Nice views.

Very popular iconic surf beach. Great for the family, great for long walks. Plenty of parking, food near by. Everything you could need for a great day out. Best sunsets on the coast.
