The Gold Coast is made up of dozens of large and small beaches, most of which are the three beaches of Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach and Main Beach. In fact, the three beaches are also connected and the beach scenery is exactly the same, the difference is the corresponding shore city scenery and facilities. Surfers Paradise, known as the Southern Hemisphere of Miami, is a major gathering place for tourists. There are many food shopping streets, shopping malls, DFS, bars, etc. on the inside of the beach. Leisure and entertainment usually lasts until midnight, and it is also a pilgrimage site for surfers around the world. . In comparison, Broadbeach and Maine beaches are quieter and the open beaches are perfect for spreading and sunbathing. Among them, Meiyin Beach is the quietest and tourists are scarce, and local surfers are almost always riding the wind and waves at Main Beach. Location: Located in the north of Surfers Tianlang Beach. Highlights: A lot of surfers gather here to ride the wind and waves. Tickets: Free Gold Coast surfing is somewhat different from what I imagined. Instead of relying solely on surfboards, it is a paragliding surf, also known as kite surfing. It is connected to the human body through a large inflatable bracket kite. A sport that sails on the surface of a kite board or surfboard. It is said that the sport has only developed for more than a decade, but it is currently the fastest growing sport in water sports. Enjoy these people who are on the sea, eager to live their lives, to cultivate a hobby with their own life, plus the unique environmental advantages of the Gold Coast.
