You could certainly be forgiven for thinking you might happen across a mermaid of two at this curiously-named beachside suburb. Sensual sea sirens aside, this is simply a laid-back spot next to its bustling neighbour Broadbeach. There’s an eclectic blend of dining options here from modern Australian to plenty of Asian culinary experiences in which to participate.
A family favourite is the iconic Putt Putt Mermaid Beach. Experience 3 fantastically themed 18 Hole mini golf courses. Discover your wild side on Jungle Trail, challenge colourful characters and tricky motorised obstacles on Fun Run and escape to a tropical oasis playing Waterways.
While there are plenty of accommodation options here, from caravan parks to apartments, don’t forget to check out ‘millionaire’s row’. Yes, here at Hedges Avenue, is where some of the Gold Coast’s Who’s Who have bought prestigious beachfront properties due to its prime beachfront location. So you may not be a millionaire, but you can always dream of becoming a mermaid in your next life.
