Cali Beach

If you’ve ever spent time partying poolside in Las Vegas or sipping cocktails at any number of the day clubs scattered around the Greek Islands and Ibiza, it’s highly likely you’ve lamented the lack of something similar at home. Say hello to Cali Beach – Australia’s largest (and most luxurious) day and nighttime entertainment precinct. The incredible beachside venue encompasses four glistening pools, VIP cabanas, countless sun lounges shaded by Veuve-orange umbrellas, two world-class restaurants, multiple bars, volleyball facilities and even an outdoor moonlight cinema – seriously, it’s Disneyland for grown-ups! Perched four stories above street level on the corner of Surfers Paradise Boulevard and Elkhorn Avenue, Cali Beach is accessed via a pretty impressive 26-person glass elevator – and folks, that’s just the beginning. Entry to Cali Beach is free however those keen to skip the queue can purchase express entry or, for a total baller experience, book a VIP area, which includes the daybeds, booths and cabanas.
