Park in lighthouse carpark - easy to find. It's a standard north coast beachy and like D'bah picks up way more swell than most of the Gold Coast as it faces south. It's a long beach so just search for a good peak. People reckon sharks but never seen one there. No greater shark risk than anywhere else in the area.
If you want to go to fingal climb up the rock and go down the hill. Dont paddle around! To get there you can also go to Fingal headland carpark, hop out and go to the pathway until there's a sign called dreamtime and you're there.
Isolated feeling during the week in winter. Looks out to Cook Island.
Almost as good as D'bah but probably best option coz nowhere near as many dudes. Probably surf it empty mostly.
It wedges up and makes it double size.

Dreamtime - I went to dreamtime recently cause there was nothing happening on the Goldy, dreamtime was 3 foot, it was soo fun, I saw about 18 dolphins when i was there.
Cant wait to boog it in bigger surf.

Awesome place - Dreamtime is my favourite beach in the world, cause usally you get to swim with dolphins and its just a really cool place with a good vibe. Just remember to be patient and you'll score.
