Coolangatta - Rainbow Beach, Kirra Beach and surrounding areas are a must visit for tourists to the Gold Coast. The walk from Kirra to Snapper rocks is BEAUTIFUL!!! World-class surfing, delicious restaurants and great walking paths are just some of the gems Coolangatta has to offer! Highly recommend a visit here if you're planning a trip to the Gold Coast.

It is a place to simply relax,take long walks and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. A delight to walk around the tiny shops in the evenings. One can go to visit the wild life scantuary and the sea world which is very nearby.also loads of adventure sports that one can do.I simply loved my stay here.The best way to reach this... More
