Fun fact: Gold Coast is Australia’s largest metro area that is not a state capital. And that isn’t counting the 12 million visitors it sees every year. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. Goldie is so great, travellers come from all over and just can’t bring themselves to leave.
If you can’t stay, you can at least enjoy a luxurious holiday at Gold Coast beach accommodation. Goldie hotels earn a gold medal for comfort, convenience and plenty of good times. Just make sure you keep track of time—you may be tempted to stay forever!
The Golden Sands of Gold Coast
We know most people are looking for beach hotels in Gold Coast for one reason: the area’s sweet stretches of spotless sand. The beach is the number one place to be on Australia’s most celebrity-laden, sunshine-filled coast.
Surfers Paradise is just what it sounds like: heaven on Earth for those in search of the perfect wave. Kooks can get down on a lesson before paddling out. Pros can take right to the water, enjoying the beach’s super-dependable, relatively easy breaks.
There’s another beach for pros, too: the legendary Superbank in Coolangatta. There’s a reason the Quiksilver Pro Surfing Competition is held here each year, and this break is tops on the list of any serious surfer.
