Great surf action

We were present during the recent surfing carnival and saw some great board riding, although the surf may have been a bit disappointing for the organisers and competitors.

This is probably my favourite place in the world. This point break is considered one of the best rights in Australia... Yes ... Its a bit crowded but once you get a wave you will fall in love instantly with this place.

Always great photo opportunities as there are always surfers out! The beach itself isnt ideal for swimming, mainly surfing, But walk around the corner to Rainbow bay beach, a stones throw away!

This is the choice of the experienced locals when the surf is rolling the best. It is a secluded beach at the furthest point of Coolangatta.

I'm a keen amateur photographer so this place ticked all the boxes for me. No one cared about me standing there taking photos - plenty of people were doing it at that time of the morning (6.30am and then again at 5.30pm).

Most surf breaks around here are more for long boards and mini mals, Snapper is a much faster steeper wake breaking close to the nearby rocks. The surf Club is nearby.

I'm not a surfer but we found Snapper Rocks a great place to go and watch some top surfing at close hand. The waves break very close to shore and it must be one of the few places where you can get very close to the action without getting wet! There was a surf competition coming up the following week,...

Always enjoy the walk around Snapper Rocks and up to the point. Good easy walk with great views at the top. If the surf is pumping, always a great spectacle watching the action.
