Beautiful golden sand. Nice and shallow and lifeguard on duty. Shops at car park and fast food. Nice length for a walk from end to end.

Beautiful beach great for my young kids no extra shops to tease them. There was a shop for teas and coffee and snacks kids stuff for sand , newspapers and such .Very quiet but also kids still at school so that was probably why.

The Gold Coast hotel has a private car park access directly beside the beach. They will give you the code to the gate at the car park. There is a proper walkway/footpath to the beach and restrooms are on this walkway.
