Kirra is Awesome

Long stretches of sand. Safe swimming. Perfect for landing from sky jumps. Lovely restaurants and local food. Plenty of space.

Walked for couple hours, went one way on the beach and back on the bike path. Great views of the sea from the bike track. Plenty of eateries and coffee shops. The walk from Kirra beach to rainbow beach was beautiful, even saw some whales frolicking around in the distance. 👌🏼

Living only 5 minutes from this beautiful beach is great. Often walk from kirra to tugun and back most mornings just on sunrise. During the day is great for families. Love bringing the grandkids here when they come to visit. Sunrise rarely disappoints.

Along with Coolangatta Beach, Kirra is a beautiful beach and very popular for swimming and surfing and walking, Kirra Surf club is on the beach. Coffee Shops just across the road. Sky Divers land on Kirra Beach too!

Nice cosy beach which is not overly crowded and with awesome eateries! Stayed for a week with my 2 kids (3 and 5 year old) and they had fun!

This beach is 5 mins from the airport and it is a wide uncrowded sandy beach with squeeky sand and a big wide horizon with sun dancing on the blue sea all day in August and backed by the glasshouse mountains. It is an unfussy place. We were lucky to get 5 days of perfect weather. Even though so close... More

This beach is beautiful. Wonderful views of Surfers Paradise and close to the Gold Coast airport. Easy parking and access to the Surf Club and Kirra shops. The beach itself had some natural water pools back from the shoreline which are great for the less confident child swimmers. Love it here!
