Also more commonly known as Golden Beach Esplanade, this beach is a perfect beach for families with little kids. It is mostly shallow water but you can safely go out enough to have a nice swim as adults. No currents and no stingers.

All you will find here is a peaceful place to relax, read a book, have a picnic, paddle out on Pumicestone Passage to Bribie Island, and so much more. If you want quiet, peaceful location or a fun day out Paradise Beach has it all - but dont tell everybody, keep it as our Secret !!!
