"The Gold Coast's best beach residential secret"

Yes I should not tell the world or they will all want a piece of Palm Beach. Great community, great neighbours where everyone looks out for everyone. After living here for nearly eight years I finally could afford a mortgage. I have moved around the Palm Beach area in three different houses and each and every street I have lived in the longer term residents and there are plenty of them are warm friendly and inviting. I have lived from Tassie to Townsville and west of that as well and I have never felt more at home or welcome than I do here at Palm Beach. It is true it is not without problems but no town is. The truth is it really is the Gold Coasts best place to live. Not too many tourists, and I would never knock the tourists as they add millions to the economy but if you are looking for somewhere quiet but want to be on the Gold Coast, outside the hinterland you probably could not do much better.
