Although it could be quite difficult to lock down that perfectly isolated wave during the season, you can head up to Palm Beach or even Broadbeach. These beaches can be remarkably empty even during the surfing season. Those looking for accommodation in the nearby area can consider options such as Oaks Calypso Plaza.
