The best Currumbin beachfront accommodation, Coolangatta is here at Tugun, at the Golden Riviera Beach Resort.
The Golden Riviera Beach Resort has a large pool with plenty of lounges and sun umbrellas to laze under, and it’s a great spot at the resort to socialise with other guests and trade notes for the day. There’s also BBQ facilities and outdoor dining settings to enjoy as well.
But of course, the beachfront location is one of the main attractions of this resort. It’s just a short journey across the sand to the patrolled beach.
The use of deck chairs on the beach from the resort is encouraged by management. With an ample selection of older deckchairs available for guests to take to the beach, parents can sit back and enjoy some downtime while the kids can play on the fully patrolled stretch of golden-sanded beach.
Tugun is close to the southern end of the Gold Coast but is sometimes eclipsed by the well known areas of Coolangatta and Tweed Heads. Visitors to the Gold Coast could well be forgiven for mistaking the “Golden Four” as one long continuous strip of beach. This local term of affection refers to Bilinga, Tugun, Coolangatta and Northern Coolangatta beaches, and Tugun is just a ten minute drive from Coolangatta and it’s twin city Tweed Heads, just across the state line in NSW.
While in Tweed Heads drop in on the Minjungbal Aboriginal Cultural Centre. It’s run by the Goori Aborigine people so it’s an authentic experience of museum exhibits, informative videos, Aboriginal art, with traditional dance and song performances held at set times. Phone ahead to check the times. You will also find Aboriginal tour guides offering tours through the museum and site, with interpretive commentary about the relics, plants and animals and precolonial history that describes an untouched paradise of natural forest and mangroves, and the cultural significance of Bora Ring, which you can see on Walk on Water walking track. The complex has outdoor dining and cooking facilities as well, so you can either pack a picnic or bring a barbeque hamper to grill on the BBQ facilities.
For relaxed Currumbin beachfront accommodation, that is close to Coolangatta, but with a family friendly beach, then Golden Riviera Beach Resort Tugun is the place for your next holiday.
