“The Spit” is the northern most section of the famous Gold Coast stretch of beach incorporating Main Beach and Surfers Paradise all the way south to Coolangatta. As the name suggests, The Spit extends into the seaway and is the gateway between the Gold Coast Broadwater and the open ocean.
The area near the seaway is currently used for public parklands (Doug Jennings Park on the Broadwater and Philip Park on the ocean side) making it a popular location for picnics, fishing, boating, dog walking and relaxing.
A walkway adjacent to the sand pumping jetty gives visitors access to the ‘off leash’ dog beach which is very popular on weekends. Pop into the Seaway Kiosk, which is famous for its crab sandwiches.
