Mermaid Beach accommodation is mainly situated along Hedges Avenue, right on the beach front, and in the adjoining streets, providing most units with outstanding beach and ocean views and relatively safe passage, particularly for children, to this popular Gold Coast surf beach.
As is the case with many resorts on the Gold Coast, the range in price and facilities is extensive making a Gold Coast holiday affordable for all, but also making it necessary to do a thorough comparison.
The long, safe surfing beach is patrolled by Life Savers year round and is one of the more popular with surfers and board riders. Boogie board riders are guaranteed some great rides and frequent beach breaks provide excellent surfing conditions for board riders.
