    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.
