Mermaid Waters is a suburb in the City of Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. In the 2016 census, Mermaid Waters had a population of 12,045 people.

Mermaid Waters is primarily a residential suburb, featuring many homes built along artificial canals and lakes, including the 17-hectare fresh water Lake Hugh Muntz.

Mermaid Waters is serviced by three public transport routes: Kinetic Group routes 756 (Broadbeach South – West Burleigh), 750 (Broadbeach South – Robina railway station) and 757 (Broadbeach South – Burleigh Heads). The nearest rail station is Robina railway station, linking the Gold Coast with Brisbane.

The suburb derives its name from HMS Mermaid, a cutter ship that brought Australian surveyor John Oxley to the region in 1823. Oxley named the area where he landed "Mermaid Beach". The adjacent area to the west eventually became known as "Mermaid Waters".
