The temperature is warming up which means only one thing - summer is on its way!

If you don't have a pool or want to head to the beach, here are the top beaches on the Gold Coast to help you decide where to cool off this summer.

If you don't mind fighting a crowd for a spot on the sand then try Burleigh Heads, Broadbeach or Surfers Paradise beaches. Each of these beaches are tourist and local hot spots with good waves and café's to grab a bite to eat.

Surfers and experienced swimmers should try The Spit on the Seaway, Snapper or Duranbah. These beaches can have rough conditions but generally keep visitors happy. Strong swimmers should also check out Broadbeach, Surfers Paradise and Burleigh Heads, but again, be prepared to fight the crowds.

Young families and beach goers after a relaxing atmosphere should try Kirra or Tallebudgera Beach.

Kirra is flat, quiet and you will be swimming in still water unless you head towards the rocks. The beach also has café's and bistros backing on to it if you get hungry.

Tallebudgera Beach
Tallebudgera Beach is a family haven with a flat beach, barbeque areas, playground and shady trees to keep everyone cool and happy. Food and ice-cream stalls make regular visits to the family sanctuary and makes for a pleasing day for all.

But if you're after surf club culture, try Surf Life Saving's best beach on the Gold Coast, Kurrawa.

In the heart of Broadbeach's food and entertainment district, Kurrawa is home to volleyball nets, playgrounds, boardwalks and some of the best waves on the coast. Be prepared to fight for a spot on the sand during holidays and weekends as it is a local hot spot.

So get out there this summer and enjoy some of the best beach, food and family culture Australia has to offer.
