Mermaid Beach is the perfect combination of everything you love about the Gold Coast – the sun, the sandy white beaches, and the relaxed coastal atmosphere, but without the crowds. Foodies will delight in the locals finds, sun seekers will be in seventh heaven with the stretches of white sand and clear aquamarine ocean as far as the eye can see, and city dwellers will soak up the fresh air, quiet, and lack of responsibility.
So what is it about Mermaid Beach that has holiday makers coming back year after year?
“Millionaire’s Row” as it’s affectionately coined, is the stretch of multimillion dollar homes along Hedge Avenue chosen specifically for the breathtaking location. There’s a reason that this spot fetched a hefty price tag, and it has a lot to do with what’s just steps away. The pristine sandy beach.
Less crowded compared to Broadbeach to the north Miami to the south, you’ll find a fantastic spot to surf, sunbake, swim, build sandcastles, and just relax. Stroll straight off the sand and up to the Mermaid Surf Club to grab a cool beverage to enjoy with your ocean views, or a hearty meal. The surf club also has a kids play room, so the adults can enjoy some quality time and conversation over a beer while the little people are entertained.
Hole in One?
Just across the Gold Coast highway you’ll find Putt Putt mini golf. Choose from three courses- the Fun Run, the Jungle Trail, or The Waterways. Make your way through 18 holes and enjoy a little friendly competition to see who can come out on top. There’s also a snack bar onsite, video game room, and barbeque area.
Just a few minutes away…
Just a little way north you can find exciting attractions such as Dracula’s Cabaret Restaurant, The newly upgraded Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, The Star Gold Coast where you can try your luck at the casino, grab a few drinks, hit the sports bar, and tantalise your tastebuds with the array of restaurants on offer. Mermaid Tavern is a great spot to join the locals for some live entertainment, a meal, or just to let off some steam on the dance floor.
And the food?
You’ll love the Miami Marketta, a laneway dining experience with fantastic food vendors, fashion, and entertainment. Bam Bam Bakehouse is a favourite among locals, and it’s actually a foodie experience that you need to try to understand. The pastries are the finest you’ll find, and the mouthwatering offering truly are second to none. Raving reviews, and featured in Vogue, the Today Show, Marie Claire, Gourmet Traveller and more… there’s a reason stopping here is an absolute must.
Little Mermaid is another delightful trendy space to enjoy a cocktail or a meal. The service is outstanding, the food reviews are overwhelmingly positive, and you can catch live music on Sundays and serious coastal vibes every day of the week. Healthy meals, fantastic coffee, grazing boards, burgers, and breakfasts to die for. A delicious way to pass a few hours on your beach getaway.
