From warm sand to breaking surf, the beach is a classic Aussie holiday that simply can't be beaten. When summer arrives, people flock in their thousands to some of the country's very best coastline paradises, all looking for a relaxing few days where they can unplug from work and recharge their batteries.
When it comes to Australian beaches, Queensland is blessed with some of the most stunning examples you can imagine, and here at Wyndham we believe you should be able to experience them all. Rather than being locked into the same seaside location year after year, Wyndham timeshare makes it easy to pick and choose which new destination you'd like to visit.
Let's take a look at three of the best beach resorts that you can visit this summer.
1. Marcoola Beach
You'll find Marcoola Beach near the stunning Maroochy River, meaning that the region boasts two different waterways for travellers to enjoy. You can spend one day lounging at the beach with a great book and the next making the trip up the river by canoe or kayak.
Quieter than some of the other beaches on the Sunshine Coast, Marcoola is perfect for families or couples that want a bit of peace and quiet on their holiday, with the open parklands providing a plethora of great spots for a barbecue or picnic. Best of all, Wyndham's oceanfront resort, Ramada by Wyndham Marcoola Beach, is perched right on the edge of the beach, so the crystal clear waves are just a few steps from your door.
2. Golden Beach
With a name like this, you probably already have a pretty good picture of how incredibly beautiful Golden Beach is. Located at the southern end of the Sunshine Coast, this slice of heaven is one of the most popular holiday regions in the country. As such, there's a wealth of different activities on offer, from kayaking to top notch shopping experiences. Of course, the food (and wine) here is pretty incredible too, with heaps of great restaurants within easy walking distance of your room at Wyndham.
Speaking of your resort, Ramada by Wyndham Golden Beach is located above the famous Pumicestone Passage, putting you within easy reach of everything the area has to offer. With its own tennis court, games room, gym and pool, it may even be a struggle to head out and explore the nearby mountains or frolic in the surf!
3. Kirra Beach
This beach was named by the ancient Queensland Aborigines, with 'kirra' meaning 'boomerang'. This actually describes the area perfectly, as the beach itself wraps around a tight bend in the coastline - located between Coolangatta and Kirra Hill. The unique shape of the beach results in some pretty fantastic waves, which has made Kirra Beach something of a mecca for keen surfers from around the world.
You don't have to surf to enjoy the region though, with Kirra Beach known for its laid-back atmosphere and friendly vibes. If you're looking for somewhere to escape the hustle and bustle over the summer, it's a difficult destination to beat. This is especially true if you're staying at Club Wyndham Kirra Beach, where you'll be close to the action but still in a private environment where you can unwind for a well-deserved break.
And there you have it! Three fantastic Queensland beaches that every Australian should visit during their lifetime. After all, with so many beautiful destinations around the country, there’s no need to limit yourself to to the same place year after year.
