Eastern Australiaâ€™s Gold Coast is arguably the Holy Grail of beach destinations. For nearly fifty miles, from Coolangatta to Surferâ€™s Paradise, the immaculate width of beach stretches. Lavish resorts line the shore but the constant sun and fine sand are only the backdrop for the plethora of activities offered along this coast.
Thirty five official beaches make up the Gold Coast, but once youâ€™ve relaxed long enough to hone your tan to Australian bronze, youâ€™ll want to have some fun as well, (or, just keep laying there–You deserve the break and Iâ€™ve heard thereâ€™s no such thing as “too tan”). Kayaks and jet-skis by day will keep you occupied on the water but at night, or in the event of (dare I suggest it?) less than ideal weather, you can delve into the thriving towns adjacent to the surf. World-class shopping, casinos, golf courses, vineyards and even theme parks abound so the options are never-ending.
Flirt with lady luck at Conrad Jupiters Casino in Broadbeach or take a once in a lifetime tour with Hot Air Balloon Gold Coast complete with champagne breakfast. What I love so much about the Gold Coast is the sheer volume of different points of interest. There is something here that will inspire everyone from the naturalist to the fashionista, the wine connoisseur to the dedicated surfer/beach bum.
If you simply crave one of the finest beach settings in the world, this is it. If you want all of the trimmings of a true vacation haven laced with colorful wildlife, laid-back Australian charm and extraordinary attractions, the Gold Coast is definitely it.
