Surfers Paradise Beach
The iconic golden sand beaches of Surfers Paradise are just a 2 minute walk away. Throw your hats, sunnies, thongs, sunscreen, water, and towels in a bag, cross the road, and you will quite literally have hit paradise.
Even during winter, Gold Coast beaches remain pleasant to enjoy both on the sand as the sun is nearly always shinning and in the water, with water temps not dropping too far making a beach day perfect for a swim and boogie board or a game of beach cricket.
Be sure to swim between the yellow and red flags so you have the trained eyes of the lifeguards watching over you and your family!
Artique Lagoon Pool and Facilities
Artique features a lovely partially covered outdoor pool that is heated in winter framed by perfectly manicured gardens.
For those who want to enjoy a meal in the beautiful Gold Coast sunshine, you can cook up a storm in the BBQ area.
After a big day out exploring Surfers Paradise or even after lazing on the beach, you can return to Artique and melt into a spa or sauna, or even use the steam room!
After you’ve had a swim, relaxed in the spa, and had a nice big meal, get your family or friends together and check out the private theatre.
Artique Surfers Paradise is located smack bang between two of the most amazing parks the Gold Coast has to offer, Pratten Park and the Broadwater Parklands, both of which are accessible either by a short walk, or jumping on the tram located just outside the resort.
Pratten Park is the Gold Coast’s first ‘All Abilities Playground’ located in Broadbeach with play equipment and entertainment for children of all ages and play capabilities. Separate areas are fenced and it includes several types of swings including a large basket swing, a giant, hill slides, flying fox, a large yellow submarine, a mermaid in the undersea zone, and a carousel featuring harnesses.
The Broadwater Parklands is north of Artique and also sits along the picturesque coastline, meaning the whole time the kids are having a blast is set against stunning water views.
It is also equipped with a variety of fun playground paraphernalia including a giant shaded jumping pillow surrounded by sand that is open for play between 7am and 6pm, a variety of swings, a giant lizard (it’s okay, he doesn’t bite), monorail pedal bikes – perfect for racing, a flying fox, a special liberty swing for kids of all ages, and finally an educational bike track.
This bike track is perfect for a family excursion, with education information along the way, plenty of bubblers, and especially smooth riding, our DQ hot tip is definitely pack the bikes or scooters if you’re driving to your family getaway at Artique.
