We visited the beach a few times. In the evening it was lovely walking to the point to admire the sunset and views to the Gold Coast. In the morning went for a pleasant stroll and jog. In the day it was hot and there were stingers so we braved the water and avoided getting stung, but apart from the... More

Coolangatta Beach is a perfect beach. Clean white sand, not many people even at the busiest of time. parking can be a problem during school holidays but its only a short walk.

We've always enjoyed coming to Coolangatta, and had another great stay. There's plenty of good restaurants to choose from, and a beautiful beach opposite. For nature lovers, walk the Esplanade to Point Danger.

Perfect place for long rambles that you can break up with strolls up the numerous coffee and food places or the iconic surf club. Also lots of dogs being walked for you dog lovers.
