Welcome to Main Beach & The Spit

Further north the Spit separates the Southport Broadwater from the Pacific Ocean, stretching 5km to almost meet South Stradbroke Island. Its southern end is home to Marina Mirage, another upmarket shopping and eating zone, along with Mariner's Cove, a base for aquatic activities.

The beach up here, backed as it is with dunes and native parkland, has a startling sublimity. It also has some very uncrowded surf breaks that deliver when nothing else does.
