  • The sea is very beautiful to be enjoying. There's a trail with benches to sit and meditate. It's a stunning beauty

  • Right on the southern end of the Gold Coast - on the Queensland/NSW border and at the mouth of the Tweed River. Great surf beach & very picturesque. 2092  more »
  • Always has interesting characters about and the southern end of the Gold Coast offers the best views in spades. So relaxing and generally speaking an easy park.  more »

  • Have been regularly holidaying in Coolangatta since 1988 & always spend many hours at Snapper Rocks. The rocks, waves, changing tides, surfers & various other visitors makes each time enjoyable and different. Great to watch the sunset over Rainbow Bay, Coolangatta & Kirra, silhouetting the many surfers trying to catch every last wave in the available light.
  • Us groks love this place cuz we can shred till we drop then roll into fresh n fried fish n chips. Pretty crowded when it's on, there are the oldies that just drop in on us absolute shredders until we can't rip no more. My advice is Don't wax the bottom of you board and also don't be a kook.
  • One of the best beaches on the Gold Coast for surfing and amazing views of Surfers Paradise including Awesome Sunsets !
  • A nice place aside from surfers paradise. Check it out!
  • Beautiful and beach to spend with the family. Lots of people surfing and also great for a weekend visit with your fellow friends.
