Went on a Wednesday and there were a few interesting markets, a really nice bakery stall that had free samples. Went through all the stalls in about 20 minutes.

So many stalls along the esplanade. What a diverse range of products we found and on this occasion we opted for a mixed variety of soft nougat ... delicious. Great family friendly and fun atmosphere.

Great way to enjoy the sunset after a long day at the beach. They have some really funky products for pets. We also loved this one stall which made wax hands by taking imprints of your hands in wax.

Well worth a visit if you’re in the Gold Coast on a wed, fri or sun night. Lots of interesting stalls to look at even if you don’t buy anything. Don’t expect to get dinner there, as no food stalls but can grab a bite...More

Good location, but number of stalls was disappointing. Stalls were selling mostly souvenir and toys. We were looking for fresh food but seems like the market are not meant for food lovers. Still a good place for chill out anyway.

We didn't know about it. We found it suddenly when we backed to the beach after our lunch.it's similar like a Village Fair. Very good place to buy some souvenir.

Hi Abbey. We didn’t eat out in Surfers so can’t really help you with choosing there. I disagree with another reviewer that prices are expensive - it depends on where you choose etc. Just like beautiful Singapore you can eat... More
