One of my favourite local day-get-aways is a visit to Point Danger and Coolangatta south of the Gold Coast.

I always feel on holiday when I am in the neighbourhood and worries from home seem distant.

A popular cafe and casual dining spot is Cafe D-bar.

The views are spectacular and sitting up stairs makes you feel on top of the world. Open air, gentle breeze and usually yummy food.

I often order the coffee martini and today tried the Gravelox salmon. Maybe I don’t know my graveloxes but it wasn’t as good as the salmon I have sampled in Monaco and the south of France but fortunately the view makes up for the food today.

The breakies are generally good. But they can get overwhelmed and quite busy and today my meal and drink came in dribs and drabs.

Overall it is generally a safe bet, good location and a good spot to take visiting guests.
