Travel: Beaches in Gold CoastThursday, June 25, 2015
Other than theme parks, Gold Coast is known for their beautiful beaches that stretch on forever. Sunny yet cool, the beautiful weat...
While you are at Surfers Paradise, I would also highly recommend that you visit SkyPoint Observation Deck for a bird's eye view of Gold Coast. Aside from its glowing beaches, you will be treated to a breathtaking view of Gold Coast's waterways. Fun fact of the day: Did you know that Gold Coast has more waterways and canals than Venice?
General admission tickets are priced at A$22 for adults and A$13 for children. There's also a family pass for 2 Adults + 2 Children priced at A$57.
If you are up for some adrenalin-pumping action, try the SkyPoint Climb. The climb is conducted outdoors and takes you right to the top of the building. We were all ready to book a slot but eventually decided against it because we found out that no cameras are allowed, which we thought was quite a waste.
If you are interested, tickets are priced at A$69 for adults (Day Climb) and A$49 for children (Day Climb), and A$80 for adults (Twilight Climb) and A$69 for children (Twilight Climb).

If a little peace and quiet is what you are after, head over to Nobby beach. An oasis of calm and serenity, there's hardly anyone around at all. If I were staying in Gold Coast, I would come here everyday just to chill out and unwind after a long day at work.
3) Coolangatta Beach
Coolangatta beach is the nearest beach to the airport and is located close to several cafes and shops.
4) Broad Beach
Even if you don't wish to enter the sea, take a walk towards the waves, twiddle your toes and enjoy the moment as the waves crash onto shore and break into delightful white foam at your feet. Trust me, it's worth it.
