Kirra Beach, Coolangatta
(4.8/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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. Kirra Beach is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Coolangatta Edition.
