“Photo not of Kirra Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

The photo does not appear to be Kirra Beach looks more like Greenmount Beach in Coolangatta (no trees and headland point at Kirra)

“A lovely, uninterrupted view.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

Try the lookout above the beach to decide where you'd like to swim. Kirra, Greenmount, Rainbow or further north. The water is lovely in any direction and the walk along the beach at Kirra to the north can take you as far as your legs can carry you....well at least to Currumbin....I think.

“Not what it used to be.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2012

Kirra Beach used to be one of the great surfing beaches but it has changed so much it's just not what it used to be.

Fine for swimming but nothing special, remember to always swim between the flags and never take that for granted.

“Always was a great big beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2012

There has been a great deal of publicity about how Kirra Beach is being ruined ... Too much sand! Some of the young surfers think the Tweed diversion is ruining the surfing point break. The fact is that there always was a lot of sand at Kirra ... Back in the 60s the place was a fav spot for university students recovering from exams, and the 100 a side beach cricket games we're possible because of the wide expanse of sand. The region always had that wonderful bohemian atmosphere, which generally seems to prevail to modern times. It is interesting to see that some of the fancy new apartment buildings are selling the message for the old baby boomers to "come on home" ... Kirra still has the original feel.
