This is a brilliant place to watch the really able surfers do their tricks and training. Beautiful outlook whether in Sun or Rain.

Just a magic location. One of the best breaks on the planet. If you want to swim head around the corner to Greenmount Beach & Rainbow Bay is also good for kids. If you are here on a holiday have a beer & a meal on the verandah of the Rainbow Bay Surf Club. After a day at work unwinding over a drink with my wife at RBSC and watching the board riders when the surf is going off I sometimes feel that I am in heaven. We have been to the beaches in Europe, Thailand & Bali but nothing beats the southern end of the Gold Coast on a beautiful day.

Lovely surf spot that is busy area but has a good vibe to it, with nice eateries around the area. Get in early for parking.

Stunning location, great place to watch the local professional surfers in action. Beware, it gets VERY crowded during Surfing comps such as the Quicksilver/Roxy Pro and when Surf Carnivals are on. Still, a beautiful part of the world. Rainbow Bay Surf Club is ideal for a cool drink or to enjoy lunch or dinner. The food and views are fabulous! Highly recommended.
