This is the Coolangatta accommodation you’ve been looking for, or perhaps the accommodation you didn’t know you were looking for. Rainbow Place holiday Apartments can be found just over the hill from Coolangatta in the sheltered little Rainbow Bay. This is the perfect beach for families, especially young families with kids that aren’t quite ready for any of the white water beaches of the Gold Coast.
Rainbow Bay is located close to Tweed Heads and Coolangatta, so if you’re looking for a central location then Rainbow Place is a great choice. This delightful holiday apartment resort has spacious fully self contained one and two bedroom accounts with ocean-facing views.
Rainbow Place is the last stop before the Gold Coast becomes New South Wales. The beach in front is a very safe swimming beach, patrolled by the Rainbow Bay Surf Lifesaving Club, and just two hundred metres from Rainbow Place. For younger families, the low tide offers the perfect setting for young kids and toddlers to enjoy the ocean — with supervision of course.
Rainbow Bay is a great place for families to stay with a varied coastline to explore. The path up the hill overlooking Rainbow Bay leads to Point Danger, given the name by Captain Cook as he sailed north past the headlands in May 1770. A walk up the rocky headland will reward you with spectacular views where Queensland and New South Wales meet. This historical landmark is where you’ll find the Captain Cook Memorial Lighthouse, the first lighthouse in the world to use laser technology.
Tweed Heads is just around the corner and Kingscliff slightly beyond. On the Kingscliff main street Marine Parade are some superb food producers, cafes and restaurants and it’s just fifteen minutes drive from Coolangatta via the M1. You’ll also find beach and estuary access for swimming, surfing and fishing. The paddle boarding and kayaking conditions are superb too.
Head the other way for Coolangatta, home to plenty of upscale cafes and restaurants. It’s a busy destination with a vibrant al fresco dining culture, and home to several major events throughout the year, including the fabulous Quiksilver Roxy Pro, Bleach Arts Festival and Cooly Rocks On Car Extravaganza for starters. Whether you’ve come relaxation or full-on excitement, Rainbow Place is the perfect Coolangatta accommodation. Book now
