Aside from a slew of exciting inland places and escapades to carry out while staying at the superb Main Beach holiday accommodation, vacationers can also try a different kind of adventure as you plunge into the deep and shallow waters in the Gold Coast. Our guests at the Main Beach family accommodation can experience the thrill of the underwater exploration and marvel at the flourishing marine life at the most well-known dive sites in the Gold Coast.

Just a short boat ride from Ocean Sands, you’ll discover the spectacular dive site off the coast of Cook Island.

For those holiday makers at our elegant yet cheap accommodation in Main Beach who are daring enough to swim in the “sharky” spot can take on a challenging dive at the Nine Mile Reef. A mere 40 minute boat ride from our Main Beach apartment accommodation, Nine Mile Reef has a depth of 10-30 metres and has a rocky reef terrain. Recommended for intermediate divers, this awesome dive site is home to some amazing yet dangerous variety of sharks such as the grey nurse sharks, hammerhead sharks, blind sharks, bronzw whaler and leopard sharks.
