Mermaid Beach is pure magic. Relaxed and a little bit retro, it’s the laidback neighbour of vibrant Broadbeach and ultra-cool Miami. This is the true Gold Coast lifestyle, with the best of everything right on your doorstep, including your own stretch of pristine beach and some of the best wave breaks in Australia.

Loved by locals and visitors alike, it constantly surprises with new places to explore, eat and play.


The best of both worlds 


Yves places you along the most relaxed stretch of coastline on the Gold Coast, where you can access the best of two worlds. Positioned right on the edge of Broadbeach, it lets you dip in and out of the action whenever desired, but also gives you the ability to retreat to your apartment, the recreation deck or the residents’ rooftop terrace, so you can take time out and just listen to the soundtrack of the surf 

The beach itself is a beautiful spot with reliable surf, popular with both laidback swimmers and surfers looking to escape the crowds and catch a wave; while ‘Millionaire’s Row’ along Hedges Avenue is known as the Gold Coast’s most prestigious residential street, attracting affluent buyers looking for premium beachfront real estate that’s still conveniently located amongst the action of local cafes, restaurants, and shops.


Cool, calm and connected article-image

As one of the smaller, more chill suburbs on the famous Gold Coast, yet still well-connected to its surroundings, Mermaid Beach is rapidly becoming the desirable place to be. All the major attractions of the Gold Coast are a hop, skip and jump away, including Pacific Fair, one of the Southern Hemisphere’s finest luxury shopping malls, and the Star Casino, a lively hub of dining and entertainment.

The Gold Coast Light Rail makes getting around without a car a breeze, while the Gold Coast Highway and Pacific Motorway are close by, allowing for swift and easy travel up and down the coast. The Gold Coast Airport is just 16km from Yves, making this a great location for both interstate weekenders and interstate relocators who have moved to the Gold Coast for more work-life balance (and sunshine!).


A local neighbourhood worth discovering article-image

Fresh food destinations, breakfast spots, coffee shops, bars and wonderful restaurants are in abundance at Mermaid Beach, providing a delicious blend of choices for foodies.

Beachgoers will no doubt head to the Mermaid Beach Surf Lifesaving Club to refuel after a surf or swim, while enjoying the great views of both Mermaid Park and out to the water. For something a little sweeter, Bam Bam Bakehouse is only a couple of minutes from the surf club and sells mouthwatering house-baked pastries, or coffee lovers can pick up their own beans at Koko Coffee Roasters.

A melting pot of cuisines ranges from Japanese at Etsu Izakaya, American at Easy Street Diner, Mexican at Bonita Bonita and Filipino at Lamiay Kaayo, offering something for both the safe and adventurous palates. After dinner, balmy nights are best spent in the beer garden at Mermaid Beach Tavern. 

On the weekends, put those golf skills to the test at the family-friendly Putt Putt Mermaid Beach, browse contemporary art at the 19 Karen gallery, or take a break and recharge at the serene Soak Bathhouse.
