My first visit to Coolangatta beach and I’m in love. Squeaky white sand, crystal clear water. The days we were there, the water was delightfully warm and calm. It was patrolled by lifesavers. There was a couple of days the onshore winds were blowing in...More

By far one of the most beautiful beaches, surfers abound in the great waves. Easy access to restaurants and shops.

Beautiful beach we had a view from our bedroom window. Very clean and surfing seems good although I don’t do it so really not able to judge but there seems a lot going on.

was a nice beach to visit and swim at, tried earlier in the day, however parking is terrible, stopped in the afternoon, for a quick swim and walk on the beach, ended up getting some dinner and enjoying the sunset whilst eating on the beach

Coolangatta beach is always a favourite of ours. Have been coming here for years. Lots of beach front accommodation, clubs and Restaurants. Rainbow Bay one side and Kirra Beach the other. Great for all the family!

Soft sand, wide beaches, no crowds, we did the First Annual Boxing Day Surf Crash at 7:00Am on the 26th. We had a hoot! Such a wonderful usable beach like we don't have here in Northern CA.

A beautiful beach Lots of sand to play in so you don't get in other people's space. Surf was lovely. A nice path for beach walks if you don't want to go in the sand (handy with the pram) and lots of playgrounds close too!...More
