Holiday Location - Main Beach

Just north of Surfers Paradise, Main Beach is a stylish and sophisticated beachside destination, which still retains a casual beach lifestyle. Offering a wide range of attractions, a leading dining precinct and exclusive designer boutiques, Main Beach is a holidaymakers dream with a wide range of accommodation on offer.

Main Beach is located near a long sandbar known as The Spit which divides the Broadwater from the Pacific Ocean, and this is where you'll find the famous Sea World theme park, the opulent Palazzo Versace Hotel and Sheraton Mirage Resort, and the exclusive shopping and dining village of Marina Mirage.

A family favourite for decades, the award-winning Sea World marine theme park is renowned for its entertaining educational shows and exciting rides, and other attractions such as Polar Bear Shores and Shark Bay. Or if five star shopping and dining's more your style, don't miss Marina Mirage which features an exclusive selection of art galleries, waterfront restaurants and designer boutiques selling famous international labels such as Louis Vitton and Versace. Why not pamper yourself with a trip to the Golden Door Day Spa, located at the Sheraton Mirage Resort, which combines activities and spa treatments in a luxurious beachfront environment.

If you're looking for something more active, the popular Federation Walk meanders along the coastline and beaches and you can stop for refreshments at the historic Main Beach bathing pavilion or the Southport Surf Life Saving Club. And the Marina is a hive of activity for all things water-oriented - from boating, fishing, watersports and cruises. Or cycle along the Southport Seaway to see the boats coming and going from the Broadwater.
