Main BeachGold Coast

From houseboats to jet boats, humble fish ‘n’ chips to the finest dining, this northern stretch of Gold Coast perfection has it all.

The simply named beachside suburb began as Southport’s main swimming spot and its early 20th-century architecture reminisces about the good old days. Get a traditional beachside feed of fish and chips from the takeaway joint in the heritage bathing pavilion and spot dolphins offshore. Swim or surf in the open shore breaks or watch the action from a shaded foreshore park.

"Enjoyed the location easy access to the beach and shops, although being on the esplanade traffic noise was minimal.
