The Surfers Paradise Beach is perhaps the icon of the Gold Coast and even Australia’s #1 tourist beach. This section of the beach stretches from the end of Narrowneck Beach at around the Ocean Avenue area in the north through to around Markwell Avenue at its southern end where it becomes Northcliffe Beach.
The beach is superb for early morning strolls catching the sunrise and also especially nice in the evening for leisurely strolls. It’s also a popular place for just relaxing, games with the kids, and so on.
Always swim between the flags, and for detailed information on where it is safe to swim visit beachsafe.org.au/../surfers-paradise
