Main Beach Accommodation

The literally named Main Beach was when the Gold Coast was first being developed, the main surf beach in the town of Southport. Now it remains well trafficked due to its still-perfect beach, ornately street-scaped waterfront, amazing weather, popular café districts such as Tedder Avenue, and culturally rich history.

Main Beach accommodation caters to those looking for a classy, yet causal beach holiday within walking distance to boutique cafes and restaurants, traditional fish and chips shops, shopping avenues, and surf beaches.

One of the highlights of visiting Main Beach is as soon as you enter from the north a traditional bathing pavilion appears. The large pink building is completed with retro prints of Main Beach as it was decades ago, while the inside has been refurbished as a funky little café complete with fish, chips, and potato scallops on the menu! For a more serious meal head next door to the Southport Surf Club for beautiful views, hearty meals, and an afternoon drink or two. Fun fact: Southport Surf Club was the first Surf Club to grace Gold Coast beaches built in 1936.

Tedder Avenue lies just behind the beach strip and offers an abundance of exclusive restaurants, boutique shops, trendy bars and posh cafes that will absolutely delight. Socialites, surfers, and visitors alike are drawn to this mini mecca of style and delicious cuisine.

Main Beach accommodation ranges from exciting family options such as Sea World Resort and Water Park and Pacific View Resort to five star luxury at Palazzo Versace to 3 bedroom apartments in Oscar on Main, Main Beach can accommodate any desire.

Main Beach Weather

Originally the central beach hub of the Gold Coast, Main Beach still enjoys the beautiful weather that first gave it popularity.

Summers average high 20’s temperatures during the day with the nights not dropping below the 20’s. The water is perfect for swimming, surfing, and water fun of all kinds but be sure to slip, slop, and slap as the sun carries a bite!

Winter temperatures still sit in the 20’s during the day meaning beach visits are still enjoyable if you don’t mind slightly cooler water temperatures while nights promise clear skies and a dry climate.
