The Best Beaches for Kids on the Gold Coast

If Queensland is known for one thing, it’s our beautiful beaches. Most of our coast consists of sprawling stretches of white sand and crystal clear waters that promise a refreshing dip and relaxing day. If you’re planning your next sunny family getaway, you may be wondering where you can find the best beach for kids on the Gold Coast. We have done some digging and found the best kids beaches on the Gold Coast that guarantee a safe swim for all ages.

The 5 Best Beaches for Kids on the Gold Coast

Currumbin Creek Inlet

Palm Beach Parklands and Currumbin Creek Inlet are kid-central for summer fun. The creek itself is a calm and clean spot for little ones to splash around in and the fun doesn’t stop on the kid-friendly beach at this Gold Coast hotspot. A little way back from the shore, you’ll find picnic spots, a cafe, and the star attraction, an epic pirate park that all imaginative swashbucklers will love. 

Kurrawa Beach

Do you have older kids who are ready to take on bigger waves? Head to Kurrawa Beach. While this popular spot is probably too rough for little ones, it is also the most patrolled kids beach on the Gold Coast. This makes it the safest spot for bigger kids to dip their toes in real surf as they outgrow lagoons. 

Ian Dipple Lagoon

If your kids are too little to face the surf, head to Ian Dipple Lagoon. This serene spot is perfect for young kids, babies, and toddlers to enjoy a swim with no rips or dangerous currents to be seen. Play in the shallow water, watch the pelicans, and take a night time dip as the lagoon lights up after sunset.

Tallebudgera Creek Inlet

Another inlet that is ideal for small kids getting a feel for the water is Tallebudgera Creek Inlet. This iconic kid-friendly beach on the Gold Coast boasts crystal clear water and soft bright sand that your little one will love playing in. The spot is even patrolled during summer to keep an eye on adventurous swimmers.

Sea World Drive

Lastly, one of the best kids beaches on the Gold Coast is conveniently located on SeaWorld Drive. This gorgeous stretch features plenty of calm swim spots and shady beaches that are perfect for a day of play. Head straight to the beach for a day trip or stay at the resort and take a break from the marine fun at SeaWorld for a day of fishing, swimming, and dolphin watching.
