As its name suggests, Mermaid Beach is a tranquil spot to enjoy all the Gold Coast has to offer. Much quieter that its northern neighbours, Mermaid Beach is set away from the many high rises that dominate the skylines of Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach.
The beach has a small swell, making for ideal swimming conditions. However, board riders can generally find some action off the banks.
The kids will love burning off some energy in Ken Mansbridge Park, and the many quiet picnic and barbecue areas provide a great place for a low cost lunch or dinner.
