Amazing view from the lookout. A short climb up to the look out point and you can enjoy a great view along the beach. You can also see the observation tower in Surfer's Paradise. Enjoy a walk along the beach

Excellent service. Ordered the seafood linguini and Southern chicken burger. 30 plus dollars for the linguini is over price. 20 bucks for the burger. Overall food is quite tasty and service prompt. View of the ocean while dining is an added bonus. Coffee is really...More

This is a very popular spot to visit, climb up to the viewing platform can be a bit tricky for older people, me included!! There is also a club there for meals etc
