Kirra Beach, Coolangatta

4.8
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.

  • SURFERS PARADISE-is the BAYRON BAY drive in was the most beautiful beach. (There are also weather conditions!) Chillin in the Sun is quite strong, but less people as they watched the building of the Gold Coast beaches. There is also the sea blue. Fine sand, in the sand! (No stones and shells is a beach sandals and water shoes-free!)
