Gold Coast Style Guide

Are you heading to the Gold Coast for holidays soon? We give you our insider tips for what to expect and what to wear to each of our favourite destinations. Capriosca Swimwear is designed on the Gold Coast, so we consider ourselves experts when it comes to women's swimwear and coastal styling. 


This northern beach is close to Seaworld, Marina Mirage and the Spit. Just a couple of blocks away is the famous Tedder Ave strip for restaurants and boutique shopping. Being close to the Broadwater and Southport, it is a popular spot for boating enthusiasts, families and retirees. Wear classic one piece swimwear at the 5 star resort pool, or cover up on the boat in our long sleeve styles. Try chlorine resistant swimwear if you're heading to the theme parks.

Busy and bustling, Surfers Paradise is known around the world as the destination for family fun by day and party time at night. With endless activities on and off the beach, Surfers Paradise is well worth a visit. Or if you need a little culture, venture inland a few blocks to Bundall and take a look at what’s on at HOTA (Home of the Arts). Wear your brightest bikini and stand out from the crowd. If you're here on your babymoon, check out our maternity swimwear collection.

Close to shopping Mecca, Pacific Fair, Mermaid Beach is a favourite for locals and visitors alike. Stroll along the mall in Broadbeach for every cuisine imaginable or pop over to the Casino if you’re feeling lucky. Then have a break in one of Mermaid’s popular boutique cafes or head further south to take in the cool factor in Nobby Beach. Wear an off the shoulder style to take you from beach to bar.

Fine dining, cool roof top bars and perfect surf breaks are the star attractions at Burleigh Heads. Take a picnic and relax on Burleigh Hill watching the waves roll in, then head to one of the nearby bars for cocktail hour. Burleigh can be as relaxed or up market as you make it. Take a walk over the hill to Tallebudgera Creek for water sports and family friendly fun. Wear a Frill Sleeve one piece for both practicality and style.

Discover local creatives and quirky coffee shops as Palm Beach continues to transform into a busy hub for locals and visitors. Enjoy long walks along the pristine stretch of white sandy beach and venture around to Currumbin for stand up paddle boarding and surfing. Low key cool is the vibe in downtown Palm Beach, so wear your favourite shade from our Honey Comb collection with a cool cover up.

Surf all day, enjoy sundowners at your favourite surf club and casual dining at any of the cool beachside eateries.
