Beach of the Gold Coast

These days, I am working hard to post some pictures of the trip and share it with my family and friends. Here is another such post.

The tide of the Surfers Paradise, as the name implies, is very suitable for surfer, and not so good for swimmers.

I like the tide (only the tide, not water) in Qingdao better, since it was soft and gentle. In the Surfers Paradise, when the tide goes away, the water is just as high as your knees, but when the tide comes, it is higher than your head. The strong force of the tide sometimes create that kind of “water hole”, which the surfers love so much. For me, without a surfer board, it is just a water wall that I need to break into. The force strongly pushes me directly onto the beach. I have to get back to the original position.

In conclusion, very good for surfers with surfer board, and kind of depressing for swimmers – you just cannot swim in tide like that.
