Just far enough away from Surfers Paradise to be a beath of fresh air, away from the crowded beaches and noisey tourists .Several beaches to visit with clubs and cafes nearby.

We went here for a romantic walk along the beach after lunch. There was plenty of people enjoying the school holidays and the only issue was parking.

Coolangatta beach is a wonderful place to bring family and friends. Although it was a bit chilly, that didn't get in the way from the beautiful scenery. Its also a short walk to green mount and north kirra beach if you're feeling a change.

Coolangatta has motels central to all the shopping and dining experiences you desire. Lovely place to visit but be warey if where you stay. Check out the lodgings don't always go by the booking company you go through. Check out the reviews - look at all of them for a true picture.

Coolangatta Beach is a very clean beach and has less of the crowds that are in Surfers Paradise. Great Boardwalk for those wanting to exercise.

Accompanied by grassy parkland with kids playgrounds, this beautiful clean beach has lovely clean looking water and is not too wild for children. It's wide and seems like it goes for miles. Surrounded by Coolangatta strip's many eateries, it's also a great spot for grabbing fish and chips or an ice-cream.

A little jaded when we got here from Surfers Paradise, and given that we live in Hervey Bay. it's hard to get enthused about another east coast beach... sorry! It IS very pretty, though....
