Australias Gold Coast is well named, what with its endless golden beaches and balmy subtropical weather (most of the time it basks in a 30 degree glow). Its also been the target of a gold rush, amongst both tourists and surfers drawn by the endless kilometres of beach, the best breaks in Australia and the promise of more leisure options than you can shake a golden bough at

Royal Resorts invites you to experience Australias very own version of Miami, with a variety of Gold Coast holiday options available through REX. Actually theres more to the Gold Coast than endless beaches overlooked by glistening high rises (most of which are not actually hotels but residential buildings). Though youll probably be pleased to hear that there are more than 30 beaches to choose from all within a 40 km area. What makes these sand and surf spots all the more enticing is the variety of attractions to be found, from laid back café-living to cosmopolitan dining to full blown leisure parks like Sea World, Warner Bros. Movie World and water park Wet 'n Wild.

Through REX you can choose to stay at Cedar Lakes, Nerja or Calypso at Coolangatta - or even better, split your time between both. The former is to be found in the Gold Coasts hinterland - the picturesque green backdrop to the better-known beachfront sector. Cedar Lakes is made up of two bedroom apartments in spacious garden grounds on the edge of a lake. The idyllic surroundings offer a variety of activities from fishing and boating tohorse riding, tennis and bushwalking. The resorts Clubhouse Restaurant offers an extensive menu of home cooked flavours, while at the same time, youre just 30 minutes away from the Gold Coasts hub of touristic activity, Surfers Paradise with its vast stretch of beach and exhaustive collection of boutiques, restaurants attractions like Ripleys Believe It or Not, waxworks and a mirror maze. Calypso Plaza at Coolangatta meanwhile offers a quite different experience. Enjoy expansive ocean views across Greenmount Beach and instant access to the areas host of shopping, dining and nightlife options, with a raft of bars and clubs to choose from.

All in all, the Gold Coast has something for everyone, whether youre drawn to the world class surf breaks, the long list of leisure facilities, the shopping and dining or simply the laid back lifestyle.
