Stunning beach and beautiful headlands. Very lovely foreshore with picnic tables and plenty of shade. Feel safe with the lifeguards who patrol the beach. stunning rock pools at one end. A most enjoyable location.

Caters for everyone from sunbathers to young families, surfers and swimmers. Clean, groomed sand, north facing to catch the winter sun. The stuff dreams are made of!

Cooly has always been nice but with the shops on the esplanade having a major renovation its now great! So many dining, cafe and coffee shop options! Lots of beach, park and space and much more relaxed than surfers.

Could park and walk to shops. Couple of grocery stores to choose from. Lovely clean beach. Not too far from Kirra Tourist Park.

Not fat to walk, grab a coffee on the back nor call in to any of the cafes and grab a bite. Or, call into woolworths and buy the makings for a fab dinner and cook in your self contained kitchenette.

Stunning Beach. Quieter than the Northern Gold Coast beaches. Well patrolled. Easy access to supermarkets, cafes and restaurants. Good surf club and markets 1 Sunday a month. Sometimes difficult to get a park along Marine Parade. Try undercover at The Strand where you get 3hrs free.

Love the groomed and patrolled beach. The Strand Shops connect to the beach and you get to have lunch from woolies, and sit picnic style on the beach, without bringing a thing!. Perfect

A long time ago it was a small little town but now it has gone up to high rise building, beautiful hotels etc. A lot of shopping and Cafés around as well as cinema. The beach is quite beautiful white sand and wide, and a lot of activities for the children e.g. children's park. Lifestyle in a warmer place like... More
