We lived a block away from Kirra for a few years and it was awesome. Beautiful sand, water, views, and not too many people. Perfect location to get away from some of the crowds you encounter in Coolangatta and further towards Burleigh. The beach is...More

Kirra Beach is fantastic. It is clean and very kid friendly, with playgrounds, cafes, gelato, burgers and 7/11 all close by. We much prefer this hidden gem of the Gold Coast to avoid the crowds.

If you are not heading to Kirra anytime soon, try and find the surf cam for the area or google street view on your search engine. This might give you an idea of what's on offer in the area. From memory, the Kirra lookout... More
