by | Aug 11, 2016

With warm weather much of the year and an abundance of canals, waterways and a world-class beach on our door step, it's called 'Surfers Paradise' for a reason! 

Don't miss your opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors and hit the surf or still water to enjoy one (or more) of the many water activites that you can participate in on the Gold Coast.

Below we take a look at 5 Waters Sports to try in Surfers Paradise:

Where better to surf or learn to surf, than Surfers Paradise! Whether you are a first-timer or seasoned pro, there are plenty of opportunities for you to hit the waves.  Experienced surfers can bring their own board or hire one.  Novice surfers are well-catered for with several learn to surf schools offering group or private classes with all equipment supplied.

 SUP (Stand Up Paddleboarding)
Rapidly growing in popularity this is a great sport to get into for all fitness levels.  Join a SUP group or private session on the still waters of Budds Beach or for the more experienced you can also hire an SUP.

This fun activity allows you to embark on a fun adventure where you'll snake through narrow tidal passages and endless miles of untamed mangrove on the beautiful Gold Coast. Experts in the field offer Jet Ski Safaris to riders of all experience levels.

Have fun on the water with an Australian Kayaking Adventure!  Enjoy the scenery from the Nerang River on a Sunset Kayak Tour or if you have a little more time perhaps a halfday Dolphin & Stradbroke Island Tour.

Take advantage of the beaches that the Gold Coast are famous for and hit the waves for a swim! But don't forget to always swim between the flags and listen to instructions from the Lifeguards.  At St Tropez Holiday Apartments we also have an onsite swimming pool – perfect for a refreshing swim pre or post sightseeing on the Gold Coast!
