Kirra beach is lovely its a huge expanse of sand and you will need shade on a hot day. It is patrolled by surf lifesavers and has a decent restaurant beach front with some of the nicest seascape on the gold coast. The restaurant is in the surf lifesaving club.

Even in mid July, the water was warm enough for a great swim. The beach was patrolled and flags were up during the week. Clean and safe for kids if staying between the flags.
