Surfers Paradise - Main Beach
Surfers Paradise has become famous as Australia's most popular holiday destination. With world famous surf beaches, international standard accommodation and exciting attractions, Surfers Paradise has an enormous amount of attractions to offer holidaymakers. Of course, the key attraction is main beach - Australia's most iconic beach.
If you're seeking a surfing paradise, you may think you've finally found the elusive place. But the name "Surfers Paradise" relates more to the social life surrounding the beach than the actual surfing itself. If you really want good surfing conditions, try Burleigh Heads - only a short drive to the south. Main Beach at Surfers Paradise does have good left and right breaks though, which are always occupied with keen surfies from around the world.
However, that's not to say the Surfers Paradise isn't a wonderful spot. It is arguably Australia's most popular beach, and more photos have been taken of this developed piece of coastline than any other beach in Queensland. The extent of accommodation along the coastal strip - from small backpacker lodges to 5-star high-rise villas - is phenomenal.
Don't bother fishing from Surfers Paradise Main Beach unless you are a die-hard fishing fanatic. The high numbers of visitors to the beach have scared all the fish away.
Surf Lifesavers patrol the beach every day of the year, from 8:00 AM to 5:00PM.
