Coolangatta Beach, considered the end of the Gold Coast, offers blue waters and a wide stretch of sand, frequented by picnicking locals each day at sunset. This area is family-friendly, safe, and rarely crowded by tourists. You can surf, swim, scuba dive, or simply relax on the warm sand. Lots of cafes and shops dot the beach, and several large restaurants are within walking distance of the sand. Don't miss walking out to the Snapper Rocks, where many Australian and world champion surfers first took to the waves.

There are marine animals like jelly fish and crawlies in land that can sting you in here. Be very careful in and around this beach as medical help could be kilometers away.
