Located just south of Tweed Heads and only 12 minutes from the Gold Coast AirportKingscliff has established a reputation as a popular Australian tourist destination. Devoid of high-rise development, it exudes the charm of a quaint beach-side village. 

Centre-stage is pristine Dreamtime Beach stretching in a majestic curve from the scenic Fingal Headland with lighthouse to the breakwater of Cudgen Creek and framed by a natural foliage foreshore. For the observer or participant, Kingscliff offers abundant recreational opportunities. 

Families love the fact there are two patrolled beaches nearby: Dreamtime Beach just 300m north of Ming Apartments and another at Kingscliff's Cudgen Headland Beach

If you are lucky enough you may witness whales offshore during their migration, or experience the exhilaration of surfing with dolphins. Dreamtime Beach is very popular with people who enjoy beach or surf fishing.

From breakfast to dinner a tempting array of eateries along Kingscliff’s Marine Parade provides wondrous gastronomic opportunities for surfers, families and discerning foodies. Scattered between are an expanding number of specialist boutiques. 

Ming Apartments are located at the best address in Kingscliff – on Marine Parade, facing the beach foreshore and an easy stroll to dining and shopping in Kingscliff village.

Kingscliff is also a hub for visits to nearby scenic beaches, the Tweed hinterland and Byron Bay.
