My favorite thing to do while at Room753 was to go for a walk on the beach. Broad Beach and Surfers Paradise beach were some of the most expansive, pristine beach I’ve ever seen. The Gold Coast was peppered with a backdrop of skyscrapers and modern architecture. The sand was so beautiful it even squeaked when you walked on it – it seemed unreal.
Since the beach was so flat and wide, it made for a great place for walking, running, playing Frisbee, sunbathing, and building sand castles. It was a social gathering place for locals, tourists, dogs, friends, runners, and surfers. I adored seeing all of the varied activities happening on the beach. As a solo traveler, what I enjoyed the most about it was the chance for me to be social. When I went out for a morning walk or run on the beach I would meet locals who would stop me and ask me where I was from, how long I was staying, and how I liked the area. I even was called gorgeous and asked out on a date one morning from a very nice man. Uhmmm – of course I would go walking every day if that happened more often!
One morning I took my cameras with me and was able to capture the laid back Aussie beach culture and activities. Enjoy the Gold Coast Beach photos – after all, life really is a beach on the Gold Coast in Queensland!
The Gold Coast is a coastal city in southeastern Queensland on the east coast of Australia. The city is 94 kilometres south of the state capital Brisbane.
