Take a Dip in These Family Friendly Beaches on the Gold Coast


Broadbeah Gold Coast

In the Gold Coast, working on your tan is never very difficult as there are beaches left and right.  Broadbeach has a lot of good spots for sunbathing. Just remember that too much of anything is always bad, so do not forget to put on sunscreen and freshen up with some drinks to keep yourself hydrated.

When you’re famished from sunbathing and looking for something to eat, you would have plenty of restaurants to choose from. Visit one of the most popular joints called Elk Espresso, a coffee & brunch go-to for many locals. Blue Sky Holiday Group also has beautiful Broadbeach holiday apartments available.

Main Beach

Remember that when you are on Main Beach, you should do as the locals do. They always mind the red and yellow flags because they know how the waves can get unpredictable.

If all those adventures got your blood pumping, you may want to feast on some of the fish and chips from the surf club or kiosk to fill your tummy. Now, if you’re setting your eyes on something more luxurious, drop by the Marina Mirage to have a meal with a great view.
