Kirra beach is great for children and adults. Shallow water for quite a distance. Ideal for kids. And still great waves for the more daring. Patrolled beach and right opposite the Surf Club!

This is my favorite beach, great stretch of sand, parks surrounding, surf club. Waves are not overly large or rough for novice/ young families.

A bit quieter than some - beach is long, sandy and generally pretty calm & safe. Surf club located here. Easy parking along the area and a coastal walk available that links north and south.

I'm amazed that you can rate a beach ... it is nice as beaches go, especially if you like a bit of surf and don't mind crowds The surf club is nearby, which is handy if you are after a drink or the loo

Kirra Beach is the Best Beach on the Southern Coast. Ideal for Families as the beach is huge and the waves most time are nice and clam.

Great beach that is not as busy as other beaches. Good surfing and safe for young kids especially when the tide is out. Our kids had a great time and we will return

Beautiful beach. Two patrolled areas. Soft undulating waves for non confident swimmers. Little inlet too that fills like a pool.

Kirra beach is just around the corner from Coolangatta and has some great surf breaks. It is a long stretch of beach that you can walk all the way along until you get up to Currumbin. It's a beautiful walk and beach and worth going to if you are in the area with a surf club on the beach and... More

Kirra Beach is very close to Coolangatta and Greenmount but much, much quieter. It is a surf beach but is hidden well from the road by the sand dunes as you drive by it. It is a beautiful white sandy beach in a quieter area of the Gold Coast but within striking distance of many cafes and restaurants at Coolangatta.... More
