Where you ask Broadbeach, yes, I'm glad you did, stay with me and let me tell you about a paradise destination with a friendly people, a temperate climate, blue sea and white sand beaches.
I'm sure the bits about oceans and beaches got you interested, and I can understand relaxing on a peaceful beach under glorious sunshine while watching the role of waves in something that many will ever dream of. Not on Broadbeach on Australia's Gold Coast, but this little suburb is blessed.
Broadbeach is a suburb of the Gold Coast, one of Australia's most popular tourist destinations due to its near-perfect year-round climate and long stretch of sandy beaches. It is also a very safe place and very popular with international tourists, many of whom have settled here, making the region very multicultural.
While on the Gold Coast, many people choose to stay at Broadbeach for a variety of reasons, including it's very central location, a little more relaxed and quieter than the adjacent Surfers Paradise, good dining options and its proximity to the beach.
Most of the vacation rental available in Broadbeach is between Gold Coast Highway and the beach. So most places are just five minutes or less, a walk to the beach. A few places have direct access to the beach and many places overlook the beach and the sea.
Most of Broadbeach's accommodations are holiday apartments with just a few hotels, including Sofitel and Conrad Jupiters, which are also a casino and entertainment complex. Most of the residential buildings are of a high standard, but note that some of the smaller sites show their ages built back in the 70's and 80's. Either way, they are still kept clean with friendly helpful staff and may offer a saving compared to the newer businesses.
The best deals on accommodation in the area can be found during off-peak periods, which means outside of Australia's school holidays and outside of major events and conferences often held at the Gold Coast Exhibition Center.
There are many discount providers who usually offer far below rack prices and occasionally offer package deals, check out the goldcoastinfo.net website for a complete list of online booking agents.
