Main Beach is part of the three main central tourist hotspots that provide most of the best Gold Coast Accommodation. Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach make up this trio and lie just to the south of Main Beach. Adjoining Main Beach to the north is the magnificent Southport Spit region with its fantastic shopping, Seaworld theme park and suberb accommodation. The surfing beach at Main Beach is part of the surfing beaches that attract hundreds of thousands of tourists to the region every year. It has its own surf club and is patrolled by qualified lifeguards. The make up of the beach and the surf patterns created there make it the most popular place on the Gold Coast for wind surfers and kite surfers to practice their craft. On any day, you can stop on the esplanade and watch these spectacular surfers as they flash accross the swells, often becoming airbourne.
Main Beach is also home to the the Gold Coast's most popular cafe and restaurant strip where tourists and locals alike all gather for a snack and to do a little shopping. This commercial area can be found in Tedder Avenue which lies in a central position in Main Beach and is surrounded by the beautiful Gold Coast hotels and resorts that provide the best Main Beach accommodation. The most popular place to stay is on the esplanade overlooking the surfing beach and all the aquatic activities. Most of the accommodation here is in apartment style resorts which have big balconies from which to enjoy the spectacular views. The Gold Coast marina precinct lies at the northern end of Main Beach, where it meets the Southport Broadwater and from here you can join a multitude of cruises, dine out in a huge selection of restaurants, go shopping and all of this within easy walking distance of your accommodation.
In October every year, the V8 Supercar circus comes to Main Beach. For a week the streets are barricaded off and the race track snakes through the streets of Surfers Paradise and Main Beach and the high rise resorts and hotels become the perfect vantage point from which to observe the noisy proceedings. Bikini clad maidens stroll through the crowds promoting their products and tens of thousands of visitors line the street circuit. Apartment style accommodation on the track in the Main Beach area is always in high demand at this time of the year and is often booked out from year to year.
Main Beach accommodation is the ideal place to stay when visiting the Gold Coast and is popular all year round.
