#5 of 11 in Beaches in Gold Coast
Surf the renowned waves at Kirra Beach or just relax in the wide stretch of sand. Many visitors to the region consider this one of the best beaches on the Gold Coast. If you surf, you'll likely enjoy the long break offshore. If not, claim one of the free barbecues and enjoy a scenic seaside picnic. You can also eat lunch in the local surf club. The ocean waves are gentle enough for swimming, and a playground occupies kids. If you're here on a Sunday, wander around the weekly market.

  • Long beach so plenty of space on the sand. Really clean and beautiful! Can get some solid surf here and good barrels when it’s pumping but expect to compete with a lot of other surfers!
  • Great view, nice and clean. Lovely place for a picnic.
  • My favourite beach. Close to bakery and plenty of restaurants including the Kirra Surf Club right on the beach. Magnificent views of the Gold Coast.
  • One of the widest beaches I've been to. Very clean with squeaky sand. It's a bit of a walk from the carpark to the beach. Great family beach.
  • What can I say but absolutely fantastic!
