“Lovely spot to swim”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

It is an open beach, so swim between the flags, but with the surf club and other shops nearby for supplies, and a great park with playground and BBQ facilities just behind, it's an excellent setting for a day at the beach.

Like the fact plenty of surf life guard areas available. Nice clean beach, lots of playground areas (some shaded), BBQs, showers etc.

“Beautiful Gold Coast Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Kurrawa Beach is the type of beautiful clean beach that Queensland is so famous for. The sand is beautifully soft, white and free of shells and rubbish. It looked idyllic the day I was there. The park surrounding the beach has nice spots for eating takeaway or a picnic with lots of tables. There is also a good boardwalk running past the beach, which is great for walkers. The Oasis Shopping Centre directly across from the beach has some good dining options around the outer perimeter of the centre. We found a really good parking spot only 50 metres from the beach in the same street as the Broadbeach Police Station. It was free and you could park there as long as you like. The surf may get a bit strong for small children or those that are not strong swimmers, but if you are looking for a beautiful beach to sit on, this is a great place. It is also not quite as busy as the Surfers Paradise Beach and I found it to be much cleaner and nicer to look at.

“Great place to relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Spent 10 days with the teenage family on Broadbeach. Most mornings on Kurrawa beach. It's well patrolled by the life guards, the waves were great most days and the water warm. There 's a little shop attached to the surf club or you can go into the club for drinks / food. Oasis shopping centre is across the road and there is free BBQ facilities in the park. All good......

“One of the Coast's best family beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Kurrawa may be more exposed than some other GC beaches, but the location is top-notch and the surroundings are unbeatable! Kurrawa SLSC is a jewel in the crown, with awesome food and views from their balcony. The lifesavers are always right there, with well-patrolled sections for swimming, and the foreshore, with walkways and children's playgrounds, means this is a fantastic spot for families at any time of year!
