Kirra is a quiet little area near Coolangatta Airport and Kirra beach is across the road from the Kirra Village shops. We actually walked about 30 mins from the airport to this place and bought our GO card for public transportation at the 7-Eleven shop here as they don't sell it at the airport when we first arrived early in...

This is a wonderful beach to walk along especially at sunup and sundown . The skies are always fascinating and if you feel like a nice cold drink the north Kirra surf lifesaving club is a local treasure

South of surfers is were the best beaches are on the Gold Coast. Buildings aren't ridiculously tall and the beach had plenty of sand. Always my favourite place in Queensland south of Brisbane.

Another one of the southern end beaches that has so much beauty and activities to offer. Once again very protected from the dumping and open waves of the northern end. Lots and lots of sand so be prepared to walk a way to each the water. The sea is crystal clear and clean. Very quiet and far less populated than... More

Come here! Wonderful quiet spot. Close to the airport, lovely walking paths, 85% less people than the GC, it's all we could ask for. Food, shopping & pristine beach with views for miles. A gem.

This north facing beach is ideal for the kids. Waves are usually small and manageable for the younger ones.

Spent the morning walking along the sea shore. Really lovely and clean and sand like powder! Had breakfast at dbar and then retreated back to the beach for alovely relaxing few hours reading and whiling away the day. The time punctuated by watching the skydivers descending onto the beach close by. Beach is lovely and clean and ideal for families.

Another wonderfull Queensland beach. Clean squeaky white sand as far as you can see. Mainly locals with a good patrolled area in front of the surf club.
