We didn't have long enough. Fantastic walk to Snapper Rocks. Terrific bike way. Lovely beaches although there didn't appear to be much wave action. Easy walk to Coolangatta yet with a slightly quieter position at Kirra. Definitely need a revisit.

Love walking here. Very flat, and long. There are not too many people, even though is was 🐣 Easter. We stayed at the caravan Park, and visited the surf club at North Kirra. Easy parking.

Kirra Beach has a famous surf break here we saw an excellent 2M+ hollow right hand break off the point. Smaller left and right breaks along the white sandy beach. Patrolled area for swimmers and plenty of room to play on the sand or just relax with a book.

The Aussies has been held at North Kirra a few times and the recent Competition in 2015 and 2017 didn't let us down with thrills and spills in the waves. Just a shame the Cyclone meant the last 4 days of completion were cancelled. Even just visiting Kirra Beach as a tourist it is a lovely long beach if you... More
