Coolangatta Beach, considered the end of the Gold Coast, offers blue waters and a wide stretch of sand, frequented by picnicking locals each day at sunset. This area is family-friendly, safe, and rarely crowded by tourists. You can surf, swim, scuba dive, or simply relax on the warm sand. Lots of cafes and shops dot the beach, and several large restaurants are within walking distance of the sand.

  • As I grew up in the surf culture, to visit Snapper Rocks(Coolangatta)was a tick of my bucket list. Great beach to either surf or swim.  more »
  • We were twelve older men on a golf trip, and all enjoyed the food. Plus a few of us called in to listen to the bands on a couple of different occasions, and they were really good.  more »
