We took a bus to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and from there walked to Currumbin beach. It was a moderately long walk, but weather was cool and breezy. The beach was quite beautiful with a few people enjoying beach activities or just sun bathing. There was a lifeguard patrol here. The Currumbin Beach Vikings SLSC is on this beach and has... More

Love that I can take my two dogs out to this beach! Very pretty place, friendly people and lots of room for the dogs to run and swim! It is a must to go.

Beautiful long beach! Surf life saving club was awesome. Great atmosphere. Step out of club straight onto the beach. Most relaxing bar EVER. Function room upstairs for special events gives a magical view particularly at night. Must see.

This is the place we went for sunset. Sea water was shallow quite far out from where the surfers enjoy the big waves. Really tranquil, kids chased the pigeons which outnumbered people there.

There's a terrific surf beach, but also a calm tidal creek. Watch for finned monsters, but you're more likely to find yourself swimming with dogs and their owners! The local cafe is excellent.

Fabulous display of Queensland outdoor and aquatic lifestyle! This was our second time here. The first time was enroute home from Tweed Heads and we thought "HOLY MOLY! WE MUST COME BACK HERE!". so WE DID. The beach and rock formations make for a fun day out! Just behind the rock wall entry to the estuary is a fabulous swimming... More

This is a really impressive beach. The rocks at the end of the beach create an interesting place for surfing and whale watching. Well worth a visit.

Stunning white beaches. Friendly locals, families welcome. Worth the visit. Skip the busy Surfers strip, travel a little further afield....

This beach has thee best of both worlds , surf breaks and then a protected lagoon for the kids. Lots of local beachside cafes and restaurants right across the road and a surf club right on the sand with spectacular views.

Currumbin offers access to a superb expanse of beach which extends from Currumbin, past Tugun to Coolangatta. There are great views to Surfers Paradise from the summit of Elephant Rock and the area is more relaxed than either Surfers or Coolangatta. However, we found that even mid morning during the week all parking spots had been taken and we had... More
