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.

Just absolutely beautiful beach here away from the craziness of broadbeach or sufers paradise. This is a patrolled beach and therefore is quite safe for the kiddies to play in the water between the flags. We're really very lucky to have so much to choose from, but Kirra is very, very special.

Like most Gold Coast Beaches Kirra is beautiful and one to experience if you are wanting clean soft sand with a patrolled beach. On some windy days too Kirra Beach is the place to be to be protected from those nasty winds.

Kirra beach is a beautiful soft sandy beach. The water is so blue and the location most times is protected from that annoying wind that can ruin a day at the beach. Parking is ample and you can find plenty of great places just across from the beach to satisfy your culinary delights. The surf club is great for a... More

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.
