What is the difference between Surfers Paradise and Gold Coast?
From the trendy, touristy (and crowded) Surfers Paradise beach to the quieter and less crowded stretches at Palm Beach and the surfing hotspots of Duranbah and Burleigh, the Gold Coast’s beaches run the gamut of seaside offerings. For a tourist-oriented city they’re surprisingly largely clean too.
Is Surfers Paradise safe at night?
Violence often erupts late at night and in the early hours of the morning. Areas to be careful to avoid are Cavill Ave and Orchid Ave in Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach Mall in Broadbeach, and Griffith St in Coolangatta.
Why is Surfers Paradise so popular?
The main reason why Surfers Paradise is extremely popular to tourists is because of its three-kilometre strip of golden sand. Hailed as one of Australia’s most pristine beaches, it is a post-card perfect attraction that attracts surfers, swimmers, and joggers around the world.
