Bilinga Beach

Balinga beach

Bilinga is a favourite with holidaymakers due to its proximity to Coolangatta and the Gold Coast Airport.

The north-facing orientation of Bilinga Beach also means it offers smaller and safer surf conditions than its neighbouring beaches.

Beach safety – swim between the flags at one of our patrolled lifeguard towers

Make sure you swim between the red and yellow flags, which indicate that the beach is patrolled.  

Bilinga Beach has a patrolled lifeguard tower located at Bilinga Surf Life Saving Club, 257 Golden Four Drive that is patrolled on weekends between 8am and 5pm between November and April.

Note: all beaches are patrolled during Queensland school holidays. For more details, download our beach patrol information sheet.

Facilities

Getting there

Parking: There is a car park at the surf club and plenty of on-street parking available in side streets. Please make sure that you take note of any applicable parking signs and/or line markings before heading to the beach.

Note: Be aware that our beaches can get very busy on weekends and during school holidays, reducing the amount of available parking in the area.

Public transport: Translink buses run along the Gold Coast Highway past Bilinga Beach. Use Translink’s journey planner to plot your trip to the beach.

Active travel: Use our walk and cycle guide for the Southern Gold Coast and surrounds to plan your walk, run or bike ride to the beach.

Surfing

There are beach breaks along most of the beach and conditions that are typically sheltered from strong south-east winds.

What’s allowed on Gold Coast beaches?

Dogs are allowed on a leash on most Gold Coast beaches, but not within 200 metres of flagged areas. If you’d like to take your dog to an off-leash beach exercise area, see our off leash dog exercise areas for Main Beach/The Spit, Tallebudgera and Palm Beach for more information.

Our What’s allowed on Gold Coast beaches? page provides a summary of other activities that are/aren’t allowed.
