Storyline

This Australian soap is not defined by a family (as Dallas' Ewings) but tellingly named after its site: an affluent residential stretch of the Gold Coast in Queensland, where people of different walks of life -the casting guarantees lots of eye candy on the beach, many actors being young and attractive- gyrate around the wealthy owners of villas and yachts. A major story line is the murder of tycoon Sonia Kingsley, who had even more enemies then the initial list of suspects, such as her ex, TV reporter Trey Devlin and various other family and business relations. However as the investigation creeps forward other events unfold and other characters and story-lines are interwoven, including the not so wealthy, e.g. Canadian Tim Browning who works as a lifeguard, and would-be-capitalists such as the young but enterprising Rick Carlyle.
