Top beach

Very clean patrolled beach with lots of room to find a quite space. Over the road from lots of accommodation so very easy to get to.

The beach was very clean, no rubbish anywhere, Lifeguards were on duty and patrolling the beach, it's a very safe environment with amenities at either end and plenty of shops across the road.

Cannot come to Cooly and not go to this beach. The beautiful white sand and blue water is so inviting you find it hard to resist to take a dip. Very clean and well patrolled by the Coolangatta Surf Club. Don't have to fight the crowds because there is so much room on this beach. Absolute beautiful beach and would... More

A beautiful safe beach where children can swim safely. At this time of year you even get to see the whales frolicking off shore.

Coolie has always been a popular beach because it has so much clean sand and room, you are never crowded. It is also so close to shops and restaurants.

Have been coming to Cooly since I was a teenager and never get tired of the beach, the great walkways and walks available in any direction, and the array of restaurants and clubs available for nightlife

In a nutshell, this is a place I could easily live...country atmosphere but all amenities within easy reach. Just beautiful! Whether you want to just chill out or go dancing, shopping or exploring, it's all there. The beach is spectacular with its white sand, lawn, paths, children's play areas etc. We even saw 2 whales breaching just off-shore.

Wide spacious beaches with squeeky sand. A well set up and maintained area. Pathways along the beach or take your shoes off and feel the sand between your toes. Climatically heaven for someone from way down south!! Love the warmth!
