Beaches in Queensland
Timothy de Ruyter
Both the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast of Queensland offer some of the best beaches to surf, swim and sunbathe. Besides that, these areas have become increasingly popular with both locals and travellers so don’t be surprised when you’ll see a white sandy beach flanked by various hotels, bars and theme parks, such as Sea world and Wet ‘n Wild on the Gold Coast. Surfers Paradise, in between Southport and Coolangatta, has been the Mecca of surfing for a long time and this is where most of the action takes place. The Sunshine Coast is a good option when you want to head for beaches that are less crowded and when you can do without an overdosis of neon-lights.
