Whether you are a Gold Coast local or a visitor to Australia from another corner of the world, there is a bounty of exciting things to do and places to explore in Surfers Paradise. Here are our top ten things to do when visiting Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast.
1. Grab one of the best burgers in Surfers Paradise
A visit to Surfers Paradise is not complete without a visit to Betty’s Burgers at Chevron Renaissance Shopping Centre. A classic burger shack, Betty’s Burgers are the best on the Gold Coast offering a delectable burger menu complete with angus beef, crispy chicken and a shroom burger to name few. Make sure you save room for a concrete, think rich and creamy custard ice cream combined with some of Betty’s favourite sweet recipes. Betty's Burgers is located near Baritalia, on Surfers Paradise Boulevard.
2. Sip on the best Cuban cocktails
You may be in Surfers Paradise, but you will love sampling a taste of Cuba right here in the heart of the Gold Coast at El Patio de Cuba. Perfect for pre-dinner drinks, we recommend a classic mojito (or two) from the extensive Cuban-inspired drinks list. El Patio de Cuba is located near iSelect.
3. Treat yourself to a little bit of you time
The Gold Coast may be best known for its sun and sand, but it’s also renowned for its laid-back lifestyle. Do as the Gold Coast locals do and relax at Surfers Paradise’s favourite spa, Endota Spa. Proudly Australian, many of the treatments at Endota use products infused with organic plant extracts like Davidson Plum, avocado and Amla Berry. Endota Spa is located in the basement carpark, near the escalators, or their ground floor space near Starbucks.
4. Take the family to Infinity
Burn off a little energy at the Gold Coast’s iconic funhouse - Infinity Attraction. Filled with stunning special effects and spacial illusions, the multi-sensual and mind-blowing journey provides the ultimate experience for kids and adults alike.
5. Try the Gold Coast’s only Malaysian breakfast
Ever wondered what the Malay have for breakfast? Head to Surfers Paradise’s favourite Malay restaurant, PappaRich, for a delicious Hainan bread served with maya (coconut jam) washed down with Papparich’s famous white coffee.
6. Hunt out the perfect laid-back lunch
Whether you feel like Mexican or Japanese, Chevron Renaissance Shopping Centre provides the goods for a healthy, nutritious lunch out. Head to Zambrero or Sushi & Izakaya One Piece for a quick bite, then get busy exploring the sights and sounds of Surfers Paradise.
