Posted on October 28, 2022October 28, 2022 by WillemFriday/ Surfer’s Paradise Beach 🏄 My brother and sister-in-law and I made a trip to Gold Coast today to check in with my niece, and to check out the famous beaches there. This is Surfers Paradise Beach, just south of Main Beach on the Gold Coast shoreline. A dozen named beaches with swim areas line the coast here, with lifeguards and even helicopters overhead now and again. The beach looks empty, but there were several dozen people behind us on the beach at the swim area. It was 29°C (84 °F) today but it felt hotter. We just went in for a quick dip in the surf, and took a few pictures (that’s my brother and my sister-in-law). Lots and lots of high-rises: private apartment (condominium) and holiday apartment buildings, as well as resort buildings and hotels, line the street called Surfers Paradise Esplanade.
