Walk on the soft white sands at Cooly beach. Cooly beach and Greenmount Beach are right beside each other and blend into one. This protected beach area is perfect for swimming and surfing, and an ideal location for a beach walk, picnic and just hanging out. There's a kids playground, free BBQ's so you can cook up a storm....this is one of the most perfect places to enjoy....and it costs nothing.

A walk along this beautiful beach either on sunset or sunrise is magical!
White sands, surf rolling in with surfers bobbing out on the water, miles to walk as it adjoins a walkway round the rocks to Rainbow Bay and up the hill to the lookout.
Great family swimming between the flags and miles of food outlets parallel with the beach.
Just loved it!!

It is a fantastic beach. Beautiful Aussie sand and clear water. It is a patrolled beach so making swimming safe. It is also a very long beach so you have plenty of room. A great family beach. Also up from the sand is a great parkland area with BBQ's and trees for shade. Then the other side of the road you have lots of cafe's and restaurants including the fast food ones.

What can I say, best beach on the Gold Coast with Rainbow Bay a short stroll around Greenmount point.
North facing and protected from the wind by the Greenmount headland , patrolled, Surf Club next to beach and loads of eateries across the road, plenty of parking.
Love it.

Beautiful sand, good surf, also good walk around the coast that takes in views from the point. The walkway has been developed for walkers, runners and cyclists, a good width so plenty of room for all users and good condition.
