Surfers Paradise is best known as a vibrant resort city in the scenic Gold Coast. A bustling seaside metropolis with a laidback culture, it is easy to see why people are beguiled into spending their entire beach holiday at Surfers. From dining to clubbing - you’ll find everything you desire in this charming beach city. When it comes to shopping, however, we recommend following the locals and exploring the shopping destinations nearby.
There are three popular shopping centres near Anacapri Apartments, our roomy and relaxing accommodation in Surfers Paradise. Pacific Fair at Broadbeach offers a selection of restaurants and dress and jewelry shops. About a 10 minute drive from Pacific fair is the Robina Town Centre, a mall where mostly locals shop. Meanwhile, some 15-20 minutes north of Surfers is Harbour Town, Australia’s leading purpose-designed outlet shopping destination. This is where you’ll find quality world-class local and international brands all under one roof. Bargain shoppers will be thrilled to know that most of their high-end designer brands are surprisingly below regular retail price.
Some guests who follow locals from our family apartments Surfers Paradise, however, tell of finding bargains in lesser known outlets. If you are in the market for clothes, there is a great mall at Ashmore called Central Park Plaza, where you can find Billabong, Timberland, and Quiksilver. The Gold Coast is the home of Billabong, and you can get board shorts for $10 and bikinis for $15 in its outlet at Central Park Plaza. We also recommend local surf wear like Byrning Spears and Mt Woodgee, which are cheap and sexy and can only be found in the Gold Coast.
If you’re fond of the bazaar atmosphere, there are than 20 markets near our 2 and 3 bedroom Surfers Paradise apartments. Take your pick among the Broadbeach lantern lit markets, Marina Mirage farmers' market, and more than 500 stalls at the Carrara Markets. Fruits and veggies are cheap at the Carrara Markets so we recommend buying your daily apple here.
So take the next flight to Gold Coast, and explore the shopping destinations near our Surfers Paradise accommodation. A plentiful collection of shopping possibilities awaits you here at the Anacapri Apartments - to make a booking, click here.
