Kirra, one of Aussies best loved beaches

Kirra beach is wide, warm and inviting. Its southern end is well known for the reliability of breaks it offers to surfers. A lovely place to laze away.

Kirra has a nice beach which is great for surfing as well as board riding; however surfers must walk a long way from the road to the water. Parking is not easy in the area. There are better beaches around. The construction of a groin has adversely impacted on the whole beach area.

Quiet and lovely, beautiful sunset view when we were there. Get an ice cream from My Gelato opposite the room and stroll along the beach.

Great for the kids and rocks to climb and explore near the Kirra Surf Club. The grandkids loved the chance to climb over the rocks or build sandcastles. It is also inclined to be out of the breeze if coming from the south.

Even in winter this is a wonderful beach to wander along and the views across to Surfers are great. It is worth watching the sun set from the beach.

This is a quiet beach, never too crowded even in holiday times. You can enjoy yourself in the many cafes, or have a home made gelato. It is great to take a walk along the path that goes all the way from north of Kirra to Point Danger.

Another amazing beach to visit - not far from the glitzy Gold Coast strip. Beautiful beach, usually plenty of parking available and an abundance of eating/coffee places along the way.

Kids friendly, white sands, clean, patrolled, and lots of shopping and accommodation close by. Good for walking tracks that are also close.
