    Things to do in Mermaid Beach, Australia

    The main attraction close to Mermaid Beach holiday accommodation is the coast. There are more than 30 beaches in the Gold Coast area, tens of kilometres in length. Broadbeach can be reached on foot, and, like its neighbour Surfer’s Paradise, offers perfect conditions for surfing, but unlike Surfer’s Paradise it remains relatively quiet throughout the year.

    A little way south of Mermaid Beach holiday homes is North Burleigh, which is a slightly more sheltered beach, favoured by visitors if the winds are blowing from the north, as there’s a hill at the top end of the beach. And a little further on is Burleigh Head – this one is set within a natural park and a popular spot for picnics.

    But it’s not all about the beach here. Minutes on foot from Mermaid Beach self-catering holiday villas is Kurrawa Park, which is a large mall offering entertainment, restaurants and plenty of upmarket shopping. Golfers will be able to make use of no fewer than six golf courses close by. Surfers Paradise is the closest, while Palma Meadows, Royal Pines and Southport are less than ten minutes away. If you venture inland you’ll discover three National Parks – Lamington offers rugged upland scenery, home to waterfalls and rainforest boasting more than 150 kilometres of walking trails. Another scenic area can be found at Tambourine Mountain, known also for its rainforest and waterfalls, as well as its sheer cliffs.
