"Gold Coast, Australia" gayengarry's Profile

Our Favourite Place - Coolangatta, Gold Coast, QLD

We live in Queensland, Australia, and although we have travelled extensively we have never found beaches that can compare to our beautiful Gold Coast, just over an hours drive from home.

Our favourite beach on the Gold Coast is Coolangatta with beautiful white sand & crystal clear blue water. Our favourite place to stay is Points North Appartments & we always request Unit 59 which is on the front of the building & has views that stretch from Surfers Paradise in the north all the way south to the famous Snapper Rocks. It has a wrap around balcony & sweeping ocean views from the kitchen, loungeroom, dining room as well as both bedrooms. From July to November you can watch the whales migrate and there is good surfing at Snapper all year round, with surfing lessons available every day for those who want to learn.

Early Morning

This is the view that we wake up to each morning of our holiday.....we then walk from the bedroom onto the balcony to watch the early morning surfers while having our first coffee of the day

Rest of the Day

This is the view from the balcony, you can see the highrise buildings of Surfers Paradise around the beach on the horizon. It is a great place to have breakfast, lunch & dinner....often if I don't feel like cooking we will order a take away from one of the multitude of restaurants. It is also a great place to sit with a drink & watch the sunset. As you can see although there are many things to see & do at the Gold Coast it is difficult to drag ourselves away from the appartment.....we try to come here a few times a year.
