Near the Tweed area of Bilinga is Fingal Causeway, a crescent-shaped mass of hexagonal columns that formed when the ancient Tweed Volcano erupted its lava into the cool ocean. Just above the causeway sits the Fingal Lighthouse, making it a romantic place to walk around. A hotel in its vicinity, such as the Arabella Motor Inn, is an ideal choice.
Bilinga is world famous for its surfing beaches; there are several stretches of white sandy beach where you can relax and catch some sun, watch the surfers, or even take surf lessons yourself. There are also numerous hotels dotted all along the town’s coastline to choose from. Try the Bombora Resort for its proximity to the Coolangatta beaches and Rainbow Bay.
Bilinga is heaven for adrenaline junkies and thrill seekers with several activities on offer, from skydiving to treetop zip lining, to adventure flights and extreme jet boating.

If you are travelling with older kids or teens, you may wish to find accommodation near Timezone Coolangatta, which features over 200 games and attractions, including an arcade, bowling alley, laser tag and bumper cars. It is located in the Strand Shopping Centre, which is also the same building as the nearest hotel, the Ocean Plaza Resort.
If you are a nature lover, a hotel in the vicinity of the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is a good choice. This large sanctuary is home to most of the animal species that are unique to Australia, such as koalas, wallabies and kangaroos, wombats, Tasmanian devils and many more.
