I love this beach, it feels clean and good and healing. The waves are always wonderful entertainment, and I always feel better after a visit to the ocean at Kirra beach.

A beautiful and clean beach with breath taking views. Perfect for a picnic or a walk along the soft sandy beach. Perfect for couples or families. The shops are near by for drinks or meals.

The ocean is quite a hike from the beach and it can get quite hot in the summer months. Kirra is a surfers destination and can get good surf.

A once magnificent beach that paid the ultimate price for mans dabbling with nature by erecting rock walls into the sea and as a consequence the "Ocean" part of the beach retreated hundreds of metres so now it is soooooo far out, nobody even goes there any more. Reclamation has seen good results on the immediate foreshore with the growth... More

When the tide goes out ,there is a lagoon left by a sand bar. The sand bar protects the lagoon from the waves. Grandkids loved it there because they didn't have to worry about the waves knocking them over and nor did we.

Loved the lagoon which was cut off by a sandbar at low tide, and warmed in the sun. Parking was readily available, though in holiday times that may be different.

We landed on this beach after diving out of a plane during our Skydiving activity. Beautiful and peaceful beach. Had the most perfect scenery of the beach from the sky!

Beautiful Beach with clean white sand and magnificent coastline views. Erosion and reclamation work has made it not as attractive as a couple of decades ago and there is a substantial walk from the car parking area to the ocean. Still a nice contrast to the crowded Broadbeach or Surfers Paradise beaches. Well worth a visit for two or three... More

We had the $10 Flathead, salad and chips. The batter was very fine and light and the fish was cooked perfectly - excellent value.
