This glorious stretch of beach is patrolled and is very safe. Crystal blue water and a long stretch of pure white sand make it ideal for long walks. The gentle surf was perfect for body and board surfers.

A safe beach which is very user friendly. Faces the right way for some surf but calm enough for swimming. Supervised. Has a nice walk around the headland with great views over Coolangatta. and is opposite plenty of shops, restaurants and hotels. Very nice sandy beach, very clean, but not crowded. My favourite beach on the Gold Coast.

Did not swim at the beach but excellent for walking and people watching. Sand was cleaned overnight so no danger of walking on anything dangerous

Love this beach. White sands, aqua water, pretty surrounds and magical feel. Coffee and ice cream shops across the road, public toilets outdoor showers makes for a relaxed and carefree day.

Coolangatta is by far the best beach on the Gold Coast. Never disappoints and there are great places to see and go for lunch.

We been here for a week. Lovely apartment at Reflections in a sub penthouse. Coolangatta beach is lovely. Morning walks a great way to start the day. Surfers out in the water and and the beach we'll patrolled by surf life savers. Multi million$ apartments abound and the beach and water the main attraction. But I don't 'get' the restaurant... More

We stay at the Beach House almost every year and love to get away there for a relaxing couple of weeks. The Beach House has a lot going for it, with a great beach front view. The only negative is the lifts that constantly break down, the long wait for the two old lifts that cannot cope with the peak... More

If you visit the Coolangatta / Greenmount Beach area, you will have the convenience of the airport nearby and fantastic surfing beaches! Visit and you return again and again!
