Mermaid Beach got its name from the cutter HMS Mermaid that explorer John Oxley sailed aboard in 1823 when he discovered the Brisbane and Tweed Rivers. This enchanting seaside village is the perfect contrast to its much bigger neighbours in Broadbeach and Surfers Paradise. There’s an eclectic blend of dining options here from modern Australian to plenty of Asian culinary experiences. Enjoy the peace and quiet in this stunning part of the coast — grab a bite to eat on the beachfront at the local surf club and enjoy beach views from the expansive balcony.
