Gold Coast Map

Mermaid Beach

Mermaid Beach retains a relaxed, beachside atmosphere despite being so close to the hub of the city. This is partly due to the significant drop in high rises from Mermaid Beach onwards after leaving the sky high suburbs of Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach. Mermaid is home to the prestigious Hedges Avenue, the city’s millionaire row, where numerous palatial homes are located and is a sought-after area by the mega-rich.

Residential

Housing in this area ranges from units to multimillion-dollar mansions, modern to older styles. Older fibro beach shacks in the area are being snapped up for their land value and are being redeveloped. 

Shopping

Shops line either side of the Gold Coast Highway through Mermaid Beach. Pacific Fair, the Gold Coast’s largest shopping centre, is five minutes away and has a Kmart, Target, Myer and Coles as well as numerous specialty stores. Q-Super Centre is a 10-minute drive and has a Coles, Aldi and Woolworths supermarkets as well as other retailers.

Recreation

The beach in Mermaid is lovely and quieter than some of those to the immediate north. When driving along the Gold Coast Highway it is hard to miss the huge golf ball sign of Mermaid’s ‘world-class’ putting course. The iconic course is known on the Gold Coast and is popular for a round with friends. Mermaid Beach Tavern is a popular spot for a drink and is particularly lively on Friday nights.

Golf

The Burleigh Golf Course is only a short five-minute drive away with a number of resort-style courses all within about 15 minutes.
