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. Make Kirra Beach a centerpiece of your Gold Coast vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Gold Coast trip planner.

Beautiful beach near Coolangatta. Great cafes bars and restaurants for all tastes. Definitely a must try when on the Gold Coast. more »
Plenty of sand, clean, toilets close by, ride your bike in the park, green grass available if you don’t like the sand, bring your dog is ok, plenty of parking and cafes close by. more »
Fantastic. Beach is protected by headland. Clean and aqua clear water. Beautiful sea temperature.
Didn’t get bottled by any homeless people, did get stung by a blue bottle though. Still stayed in because this beach is heaven.
