Main Beach Accommodation - Book Online

As one of the few places in the world where people don't wipe the sand off their feet before they jump in their Ferrari, Main Beach epitomises the Gold Coast's charm.

It's a trendy island of boutique shops and fine dining, with more millionaire residents per square metre than Manhattan, but you don't need a truckload of bling for them to let you in; in fact, a pair of boardshorts, pie from the famous Main Beach Bakery and a beach towel will do just fine.

With high end fashion and waterfront dining at Marina Mirage, patrolled beach, plenty of rides and marine life at Sea World, and the Spit, a popular surfing, scuba diving and fishing area, Main Beach has it all in terms of things to see and do.

What type of accommodation is available in Main Beach?

While Main Beach is home to the six star Palazzo Versace resort, the beachfront Sheraton Mirage and the most expensive restaurants in Southeast Queensland, you'll also find that it's home to the Gold Coast's most popular caravan park, cheap and delicious meals (with beachfront views) at the Surf Club and some of the best and freshest pastries. On a section of land the size of a few football stadiums you'll find a bigger variety of accommodation in Main  Beach than anywhere in Australia.

You've heard the usual speel: "town X has accommodation options to suit all budgets", and while we're loath to resort to the cliche, the old adage couldn't be more true than in Main Beach. You really can find a place to stay for anywhere between $20 and $2000 a night.The choice is yours!

Luxury Accommodation

Is six stars enough for you? Probably not if you're a property developer in Dubai, but the name Palazzo Versace should tell you something, even if you haven't heard of it before. Mick Jagger, Paris Hilton and Sir Anthony Hopkins have all reportedly been guests and if the Queen came to the Gold Coast, this is where she would undoubtedly bunk down.

Rooms officially start at around $500 a night, but you can get them cheaper if you use a discount booking service like ours. We won't go into a list of features here because it would take up the rest of the page, but it's six stars OK, what more could you want?

The Sheraton Mirage is across the road from Palazzo Versace, it's not as flashy but it is the Gold Coast's only major five star hotel on the oceanfront - they don't quite have their own private beach because that would be illegal, but it's as close as you're going to get on the Gold Coast. With five ample stars of its own, a room at the Sheraton will cost you upwards of $300 a night and the sunrise view is to die for as is its renowned seafood buffet. 

Mid Range Accommodation

While the hotels in Main Beach may not be cheap, there are plenty of apartments, ranging from older style one or two storey buildings, right up to luxury towers with 30 levels of penthouse suites. For the best deal on Main Beach apartments try out our booking service, which offers a secure online booking system and allow you to compare a range of apartments against each other.

Budget Accommodation

If you're on a tight budget then The Surfers Paradise YHA in Main Beach Backpackers Resort is the obvious starting point - it's in the Gold Coast's favourite Sunday Session spot at Fisherman's Wharf just north of Main Beach. Here a room in a shared dorm will set you back about $18. If you're looking for somwhere quieter then The Gold Coast Tourist Park on the beach charges $28 a night for a powered site, but you will need your own tent or caravan. The Tourist Park is one a stretch of prime real estate as it's only a few metres from the beach. A two-bedroom, air conditioned cabin in the caravan park will cost you about $110 a night, or $185 in summer (you'll need to book well in advance though as there's only six cabins and they get snapped up quickly).
