Gorgeous QUIET Beach.

Love this place, love this beach! What more can you say about a beach? The sand is nice, water looks amazing. Our hotel location was great to the beach.

Even with a junior lifesaver carnival on the place was not crowded other than it taking a while to find a parking spot. But the limited parking in itself is probably a good thing since that probably keeps numbers down. People were pleasant. The beach was clean and the water beautiful. Kirra being less developed than Coolangatta just south around... More

Absolutely love love love Kirra Beach. The water was so clear and not very salty, which allowed you to open your eyes in the water and not get sore eyes afterwards. Very clean/tidy beach. Life guards very friendly.

A fabulous, well patrolled beach, with a long shallow stretch before the sea level shelved away. Very clean, great views. Only problem was getting stung by a marine bluebottle (jellyfish)

The only thing that disappoints about this beach is trying to find a park but once youre down on the sand you never want to leave.

One of the most iconic beaches to surf, other than Snapper Rocks, and for good reason. With long and powerful pealing right hand waves, you can form memories of such good times, but be carefull to follow good surf etiquette, so you don't spoil it for the locals who absolutely rip!

Kirra Beach is one of the nice beach area around Coolangatta. I like the pleasant atmosphere which is good for relaxation and beach activities either alone or with family or friends. Beach is reasonably clean with life guards on duty during the day time. Shower and tap area are provided for rinsing off any sands. They are located at the... More

It is a very nice beach. We walked from Bilinga up to Coolangatta beach. It is serene especially with good weather when we went. Very little sun light, awesome breeze and intermittent drizzle. Kirra point will remind you of Nariman point in Mumbai. A better version of it. It was full of surfers just like any beach in Australia.
