What You Should Definitely Try When in Coolangatta

If the glitz and glam of central Gold Coast do not appeal to you, you should head on over to Coolangatta in the south instead. It’s the perfect location for a laid-back seaside holiday full of surfing and just plain relaxing. Does this sound more like what you’re looking for? Then, book a suitable Coolangatta accommodation right away!

Are you wondering what stuff you could enjoy while you’re there? Here are a few suggestions:


Being that it is still part of the Gold Coast, many surfers come here for the waves. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or an expert as you’re sure to enjoy the breaks in Coolangatta. The gentler sections are Rainbow Bay and Greenmount Beach while the difficult areas are Kirra Point and Point Danger. All of these places are easily accessible from the accommodation Coolangatta has to offer so check them out. Surfboard hires and coaching lessons are also available in the area.

Water Sports

There’s more than surfing on this seaside resort on the southern border of Queensland. When catching the waves is too mainstream for your tastes, you can try out water-skiing, wake-boarding, or kite-boarding instead. Diving is another option worth considering though you will be taken to another area for it. Some Coolangatta accommodation providers have connections and promotions with service providers so it can be worth asking them for suggestions.


No holiday would be complete without gorging in the food spots in town. There are plenty of establishments popular among both locals and tourists. You’ll find that many of them are just a few minutes away from your accommodation in Coolangatta even. An example is OSushi which is often packed with people. As you would expect, it specialises in Japanese fusion cuisine with a menu boasting of teppan sizzling hot plates and poke bowls. Be sure to line up early to find a table.

If the term laid-back is what caught your attention in the description of Coolangatta, a spa break may be just for you. It may be possible to just lie on the sand and get a tan but why do that when you can get a massage? Release the tension in your muscles with the help of the different massage parlours in the area. Twin Towns on Griffith Street is highly rated along with Holistic on the same avenue. A few providers are even willing to visit you in your Coolangatta accommodation as well.


Activities and attractions aren’t limited to just what are near the beach. You can find lots of tourist spots in town if you’d just bother to look. There’s Saint Augustine’s Catholic Church on McLean Street with its eye-catching red brick exterior. Captain Cook Memorial Light on Point Danger is another must-visit. It has an unusual modern style that would be perfect for a superhero movie. It was known to be the first to use lasers but has since switched back to conventional electric lamps.

Though it may be the southernmost suburb of the Gold Coast, there is still much to do in Coolangatta. Make sure you book the best accommodation Coolangatta has to offer as you’ll often find yourself exhausted during your trip given the number of things you can do there.
