Main Beach Spit – Family Friendly Fun
Main Beach, QLD
| Beach | SUP | Snorkeling | Surfing |
The Main Beach Spit is an amazing family friendly beach with so many exciting things to offer. Bring along your dog to have fun with the family too, as it is one of the few dog-friendly beaches on the Gold Coast.
Hire out a stand up paddle board or kayak for as little as $10 an hour and spend your time paddling between the moored yachts and maybe even catching a few waves to shore. Sometimes, if you are really lucky you might even spot pod of dolphins. The Spit Seaway also offers an amazing diving and snorkeling experience, as it is home to over 460 species of fish. The marine life also includes, but is not limited to, Leopard sharks, Eagle rays and green turtles.
Bring your surfboard along as well! The Spit’s sand pumping jetty and rock wall results in a high amount of sand being collected and thus produces gently rolling waves which are perfect for beginners and advanced surfers alike.
One of my favourite highlights when visiting The Spit is the ice cream boat. It visits occasionally on a hot day, pulling up into the sand and selling ice creams and refreshingly cold beers- perfect to enjoy on a day lounging on the beach.
Lie down and relax, alternating between sand, crystal water, shade and sun at the Miami Beach Spit. You couldn’t ask for anything better!
