Turtle Beach โ€“ The Ultimate Gold Coast Family Holiday

Turtle Beach Resort | Gold Coast Family Accommodation | Discover Queensland

When it comes to a magical family holiday, Turtle Beach Resort is one of the best places in Australia to escape to. This resort knows how to show families a good time with fantastic facilities, onsite restaurant and convenience store, stellar kids club, an adult’s only retreat and day spa, and self-contained apartments that are large enough for families to have a home away from home.

Did we mention it’s located a 5 minute walk from Mermaid Beach? As well as a great set of pool facilities, the real deal is just around the corner. While you may not have heard of Mermaid Beach, it is just as beautiful as sister beaches Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, but without as many people to share your golden sand real estate with.

The resort prides itself on accommodating a family market, especially with their range of self-contained 1, 2, and 3 bedroom apartments that all feature full kitchen and laundry facilities, air conditioning, cable TV, a balcony or courtyard, and free WiFi. You can expect comfort and a great amount of space for the kids – many of our customers have wished they’d booked longer holidays as it’s so easy to be away from home when you have all your creature comforts! It’s no wonder Turtle Beach was voted 2nd Place Winner of Best Family Resort in Australia 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 by Holidays with Kids.
