Where to buy in the Gold Coast area

By Andrew Bell

Locals of the Gold Coast know all of its many suburbs and subsections with great familiarity. But those looking into Gold Coast real estate from the outside might need a little help to find their way around.

Listed below are just a few of the prime suburbs and locations in the Gold Coast where the property market is exceptionally hot right now. For information on specific Gold Coast properties currently available in each of these areas, be sure to see the listings provided by Ray White Surfers Paradise.

Sanctuary Cove

A gated community within Hope Island, a suburb of the Gold Coast, Sanctuary Cove is home to many of the most highly-valued properties currently on the Gold Coast real estate market. Sporting its own shopping centre, entertainment venues, and resort locations, Sanctuary Cove is like a microcosm of the coast itself, with every possible amenity contained within one enclosed space.

Biggera Waters

Those who appreciate the “coast” itself will surely want to check out the properties available on Biggera Waters, best known for its many picturesque islands and creeks. For those with a taste for fishing – or who perhaps just want to be near the many outlet malls and destination shopping centres nearby – Biggera Waters is the place to be.


A small, semi-rural location also right on the coast, Guanaba is home to a number of spacious properties. Ideal for those looking for a property of significant size (and some privacy to go along with it), Guanaba has been one of the best-kept secrets of the Gold Coast housing market – but the secret is sure to get out soon.

Main Beach

Situated right near the Nerang River, Main Beach has made headlines in recent years for its skyrocketing property values. That, of course, is thanks to the nature of the location itself: An urban centre with a relatively low population and a naturally beautiful atmosphere, Main Beach seems to offer the best of about three different worlds, all at once.

Surfers Paradise

And finally, the unofficial flagship of the whole Gold Coast: Surfers Paradise. The historic vacation getaway, known for its high-rise buildings and wide-spread surf beaches, has been the centre of the area for decades now. Offering a truly beautiful life right on the edge of the shore, Surfers Paradise truly earns its lofty name.

For listings of properties available in all these areas, as well as many more examples of available Gold Coast property, be sure to contact Ray White Surfers Paradise today.
