The best end of the Gold Coast. Nice and quiet with good beach full of sand and pulling waves. Two patrolled areas for the kiddies and lots of shops and restaurants to spend your time.

Great beach for the family. The Greenmount end is often quite protected from the wind so is great place to learn to surf 🌊. The guys from walk on water surf school operate here and are the best. Also great for a sunset 🌅 walk.
