Main Beach is just north of Surfers Paradise, and as the name implies, the biggest attraction is, of course, the beach! The clear, blue waters are perfect for swimming and surfing, and anglers can cast a line to fish for their dinner. The beachfront park is green and grassy, with barbeques ready to fire up for lunch and plenty of space for you to toss a football around in the afternoon.
If you don't fancy cooking, don't worry - some of the Gold Coast's best restaurants and cafes line Tedder Avenue. Grab a coffee or a glass of wine and relax with awesome live music and award-winning al fresco dining. Main Beach's casually chic lifestyle draws a wide crowd, from the quietly wealthy to the loudly rich. Enjoy the atmosphere with your friends and family, while dining on great food and watching people and luxury cars roll by.
Just north of Main Beach is the Spit, a sandbar dividing the Broadwater and the Pacific Ocean. Great surf breaks line the beach, and divers can take a trip out to the Scottish Prince shipwreck just offshore. It's a haven for crayfish and tropical fish, and you may even catch a glimpse of a leopard shark as you explore the hull. Sea World is a must for every itinerary, a theme park, oceanarium and marine mammal park all rolled into one. Swim with dolphins or sneak a peek into the lives of the only polar bears in Australia.
