There are lots of beaches to go to on the Gold Coast. My favourite has to be the spit. It's the main one I will go to. If you love fishing, this is the place to be. You can fish off the rocks or pay a small $3 price to go onto the jetty and fish off there. If fishing is not your thing and you want a fun day with the family or friends, or to relax by yourself on the beach and sunbathe/swim it is also a great place to be. There is more sand space and it isn't as crowded as other beaches around Gold Coast. There is a lovely walk up the spit's sea breaker to a minature light house down the end. Many people love to cycle from Surfers Paradise to the spit. It make a breath-taking view from sunsets and romantic walks. There is a cafe at the location if you came unprepared and want a snack or a meal.
