Summer’s notoriously been the seasons where you want to be single, soaking up those sunshine rays and flirting up a storm. But really, all those lazy beach days and sweltering nights are MADE for lovers. Summer romance is a thing for a reason, y’know.
If you’re on the lookout for spicy dates (and maybe real, gods-honest love), Tinder dropped a list of the Aussie beaches where folks are swiping right the most – yep, these are the places to roll out your towel and (maybe) meet the love of your life this summer.
Surfer’s Paradise tops the list, which makes sense – it’s both a beach AND close to a big shopping mecca, meaning plenty of people around. So if you’re QLD-based, that’s your MVP.
Byron Bay’s Main Beach comes in at #2 – so if you’re after a fling with a surfer who also has a penchant for vegan smoothies and hemp pants, forget Watego’s.
#3 should be no surprise for Sydney-siders. Yep, Bondi is the place to be for love in the East. Like Surfer’s, it’s got folks keen for a dip and plenty along Campbell Pde sipping cocktails at sunset, which is likely why it’s such a successful spot for romance.
Here’s the rest of the top 10.
