Waves are continuous and the water is warm. The beach is wide, white and the sand is warm. NOT HOT. Everyday I was able to walk without burning the bottoms of my feet. Everyone walks around bare foot. It is one of my very best beach experiences.

Thoroughly enjoyed Kirra beach especially fantastic waves, rainbow club for great food at value price! They have jogging track for fitness folks like myself to jog and kids to enjoy the playground and swing. Picture perfect view and charming scenery all around. They even have designated washing bay!

Kirra lost its spark for a few years, thanks to the dredging from the beach. Well known surfers got together and lobbied for the beach to be restored. It is now greatly improved and fully recommended for surfing

Most of the beaches along the Gold Coast have changed a lot with sand being deposited in places it has never been changing the old "classic" Kirra point break to a kind of sideways beach break.

Kirra Beach is just about 1km away from Gold Coast Airport. It is less commercialized and more peaceful. A good beach for surfing. Will be a good alternative to surfers paradise for tourist coming via Gold Coast Airport.

Right now Kirra is producing fabulous tubes. What more can you ask for than a beautiful clean sandy beach, great waves, many friends and sunny skies?
