We Gold Coasters are pretty aware of all the things we have that nobody else does and while we don’t have the time nor space to rehash them all here, there is one such thing we would like to discuss.
And that thing is beachside bars overlooking the cleanest, most beautiful stretches of ocean in the world. Two great things combined to make one extra great time. Lucky us.
The point is there’s a new beach bar in town overlooking yep, a lovely little patch of the earth we like to call Surfers Paradise and it’s ready for your very next Sunday drinking session (or any drinking session really).
Found on the Soul Boardwalk overlooking bustling Surfers Paradise beach Surfers Paradise Beach Bar recently opened next door to Surfers Paradise Beach Café.
The newbie sports the same vibrant yellow and white striped vibe with surfboards decking the walls and pendant lights hanging from long thick rope. It’s all very nautical but in a summery, Surfers way.
Now in terms of tipples there are MANY on the menu that will tickle your fancy and of course, keep you coming back for more.
We’re particularly partial to a Strawberry Daiquiri or two and there’s a Gold Coast Iced Tea you simply must try with Bacardi Rum, Vodka, Gin, Tequila, Triple Sec, lemon, lime and topped with Agrum Citrus Lemonade.
That’s a party drink if ever we’ve heard of one.
The Tamale is a fun time too with Fireball cinnamon whisky, ginger ale and grenadine.
Of course you may also indulge in all the usual suspects like Cosmos, Sangria, Mojitos, Pimms (one litre), Negronis and Frozen Margaritas plus tap beers, wine and ciders of course.
Sister business Surfers Paradise Beach Café has you covered eats-wise with an exceptional array of burgers, fish and chips, pizzas and the like.
It’s a real good time all round. Overlooking the ocean no less.
