Broadbeach is a beautiful but quiet town located on the east coast of Australia, on the south part of Queensland. Broadbeach is characterized for its fancy restaurants and beautiful golden beaches. This city is located about two kilometers away from Surfers Paradise, the party area of Queensland –- definitely you don't want to miss it. This area of Queensland is well known for surf, so book some surf lessons (surfboard and wetsuit included) and enjoy the feeling of catching a wave. If you prefer more radical activities, there are a lot of theme parks with amazing roller coasters and other attractions –- you will have a blast. There are also a lot of water and land activities like kayaking or skydiving.
During your stay, visit nearby cities like Coolangatta, Palm Beach, and Burleigh Heads –- beautiful coastal places with very good conditions for surf and a nice place to relax and enjoy with a lot of restaurants, shops, and cafes. The best way to visit the surrounds is by bus (Translink) that passes by every thirty minutes. The other way to make it, and if you like to walk, there is a coastal walk trough all the Gold Coast, that starts in Surfers Paradise and ends in Coolangatta -– you can take one day to do it and make a lot of stops during the way.
There are not so many hostels in Broadbeach, so it's better to book in advance. Broadbeach's hostels are a nice alternative if you want to skip the busy and party atmosphere of Surfers Paradise.
