Loved the rocks off in the distance. Excellent for surfers. There was a surfing competition the day I visited and was very interesting to watch the sport. Nice sandy beach.

I wish I had discovered Kirra Beach years ago! If you are looking for a quieter Gold Coast destination then Kirra Beach is the place to go. It has a lovely beach town vibe about it. And is only a 10min walk away from Coolangatta. We park the car and walk or ride for our entire stay each year. Great... More

The southern end of the Gold Coast is amazing. Its alot quiter, less hussle bussle. Not as congested and cleaner. You can walk around without being over whelmed. The beaches are excellent, plenty of space to relax and amazing waves.

Huge beach. Great for walks and goes from Coolangatta around to Bilinga (opp airport). Never crowded except when events such as surf comps are happening. There's a sense of freedom when taking the long walk along the pathway. Places for picnics and great for families.

The beach is beautiful, the water was really warm & crystal clear. It has life guards in a couple of spots because it is a really long stretch of water. There is a good park at the front of the beach, great for picnics.

The beach was very clean, was not crowded at all. Best of all it was patrolled by Life guards. Loved it.

Beautiful beach, not too busy. Perfect for young kids. Lots of shallow, pool like areas. Plenty of sand to play beach cricket.

A beautiful part of the south east coast. Very popular with all kinds of surfers. Easy access and parking, can be tight, get down early and you won't be disappointed, well worth a stop bye.
