Surfer's Paradise Beach, Gold Coast, Australia

One of the busiest Australian destinations, Surfers Paradise Beach is unrivalled when it comes to surfing conditions. Though the waters may be crowded, most visitors argue that the ride is well worth the wait. Off of the 492-foot wide beach, you'll find the warm Pacific waters very inviting. Swells for every skill level offer riders a long, fun-filled trip. To get the best waves and weather, visit from March to June, or September to December.

Of course, part of the allure of Surfers Paradise is the extracurricular activities, which include plenty of nightspots, parties and restaurants. Don't forget to take advantage of these while on the Gold Coast.
