The golden sands of Broadbeach gently slope into the Pacific Ocean, a sunny paradise for surfers, swimmers, and sunbathers. There are plenty of great surf schools in the area where visitors can learn to ride the waves, as well as an abundance of other activities such as windsurfing, sand sculpting, and volleyball. Broadbeach is only 3 km from Surfer’s Paradise and has the same excellent surf conditions, but it is usually much less crowded.
In addition to offering soft sand and great waves, Broadbeach also has a variety of restaurants, bars and cafes to choose from with a great shopping area with stylish brand names, unique boutiques and handicraft markets.
The closest airport to Broadbeach is the Gold Coast Airport, also known as Coolangatta Airport. From the airport, travellers can take the 777 Express service to Broadbeach South. There is also a train option, as Queensland Rail offers an electric City Train service from Brisbane to Varsity Lakes, Robina, Nerang, Helensvale, and Coomera.
Visitors are asked to keep in mind that Broadbeach can have dangerous rip tides, so it is not recommended to swim outside of the flags that are marked for safety. Also, plenty of sunscreen is needed, as the UV rays are especially strong in Australia.
