One of Australia’s most famous beaches, Surfers Paradise is a 3km-long stretch of golden sand fringed by crashing waves and glittering skyscrapers. Star of a thousand postcards and beloved by surfers and sunbathers, Surfers Paradise beach is just the tip of the iceberg. Behind the sand lies a vibrant metropolis that’s always up for a party with restaurants, bars and nightlife galore, plus great shopping and entertainment precincts.

Stroll down to Surfers’ famous beaches to lie on the pristine golden sand, or swim in the safe, patrolled surf. Shopaholics delight at the dozens of glamorous boutiques within walking distance – check out High Street or Elkhorn Avenue for designer stores including Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Prada, try Chevron Renaissance or the DFS store on Orchid Avenue for well-known fashion chains, or wander the leafy beachside boulevards for a pleasant high street shopping experience. Head across the road to the Q1 tower and enjoy spectacular views across the coast on the Skyclimb, which is most magical at sunset. For a relaxing day at the beach, jump on the bus and head south to Burleigh Heads for a picnic under the pine trees, before returning to Surfers and donning the dancing shoes for a night out on the town.
The Watermark Hotel & Spa Gold Coast is located directly opposite the Q1 tower, three blocks south of Cavill Avenue. There is a vast array of beaches, shops and restaurants within walking distance, and a handy bus service runs from the northern end of the Gold Coast all the way to the airport.
10 out of 10 for everything: All the staff were very friendly & helpful, breakfast & canapés were excellent & even house wines were good. Watermark is only a short walk to beach & directly across the road from Q1. We did the Skywalk at Q1 which was well worth it - best to go up in late afternoon to enjoy sunset & evening lights.

Really enjoyed our stay, the location is in the heart of Surfers Paradise and a short walk to the surf and waterfront. We were really impressed with the staff and service offered. We were greeted as we pulled up in the car and were asked if we would like someone to park the car for us and take the luggage to our room, which was really appreciated. The room was great, well maintained quite large and included a small couch, small table and king size bed and all the usual amenities. This hotel is great for corporate bookings or just a great beach holiday.
