Love Kirra beach. Has some real good restaurants just a stones throw away and the views and scenery are amazing. Best yet, do the sky diving there. You will love it!

We are so happy we stayed in Kirra instead of Coolangatta! We walked down to Coolangatta after dinner last night and were immediately turned off by the beach-drinking scene and even more high risers than in Kirra.

Great beach, excellent clear sand and water, not many people so seems like you have heaps of space to yourself, BBQ's close by to have a few snags after a good swim.

One of our favourite beaches and well suited to younger and older kids. Rare north facing beach on the Gold Coast and lots of sand with a protected break. Plenty of surf clubs and lots of sand for games and privacy.

A long curving beach with beautiful clean white fine sand. During the holiday seasons surf patrols operate in the front of both Kirra and North Kirra Surf Club Houses

Had lots of fun swimming in the beach. View of Gold Coast is another plus point. The currents were so fluctuating that most of the swimmers were enjoying every moment they were on water
