1 Northcliffe Beach
Isle of Capri 4217, QLD
Northcliffe Beach (1591D) and its surf lifesaving club are 1 km south of Surfers Paradise. The club, founded in 1947, is surrounded by high rises and development (Fig. 4.145), and parking is limited.
The eight surf lifesaving clubs and sixteen lifeguard towers attest to the potential hazards along this long beach. Rips are present whenever waves are breaking and deep rip channels may run out from the shoreline. Swim only in patrolled areas and avoid the rip holes and outer trough. Stay close inshore and on the attached portion of the bar.
