Interesting walk around Rainbow Bay and Snapper Rocks , saw us viewing great rock formations right on the beach. One could imagine thousands of years of shifting boulders , tides and winds to form these fascinating rocks.

Snapper is great if you want to check out the surfing prowess of the locals or the pro's. Great area to just sit and chill out.

I loved this beach. You can easily find secluded spots and chill there away from crowds. Also, if you climb to the top, you get a magnificent view of Surfer's Paradise.
