Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely part of coast without being diminished by skyscrapers.
Great beach and community facilities for eating or changing into togs.
Finding car park was quite the odyssey on a Sunday morning.
Relaxing in shade off beach and watching the gorgeous scenery.

I find this beach to be excellent for swimming (gradually deepens), .. scenic. Be sure to view it from the lookout

Last April my kids decided to give surfing ago at kirrapoint surf school.

James, and his team of surf coaches are really lovely and professional. The kids were up on their feet surfing waves in no time.

I could not recommend a better surf school for anyone from beginners to advanced surfers.

Such a lovely beach to visit.

Not as busy or overbuilt as it’s counterparts up the coast.

Nice restaurants and cafes and super close to the airport.

Great beach. Warmer water once you're in. Some good surfing here.
Plenty of shops bars cafes and restraunts.
Lizards between Kirra and Rainbow beach friendly 😁

Kirra beach is a beautiful place if you are looking for some quiet time. The water is crystal clear and the beach is lovely. Very busy place in holiday season but more enjoyable around February when people is back to their normal activities. It is also nice for a walk along the sea, you can reach Coolangatta by walk in 10 min. while enjoying a wonderful view. At night time Kirra is pretty quiet. There are few restaurants but customer service and quality of food is pretty low across the businesses. Don’t be surprised to find reviews of 4.5 on internet but in real what you can get is dissatisfaction and disappointment. For a better food experience proper restaurant quality and atmosphere I suggest to go to Broadbeach!!!

Kirra has beautiful views
If you like a bit of life in the evening then you are in the wrong place as it is dead from 8.00 pm.
Not sure how the cafes and restaurants survive but I have noticed so many came and went over the last 7 years or so.
It is often very wind too so not so nice.
as I said the positive side are the views and the airport just 5 minutes walk from the beach !

Beautiful beach but what makes it the best is the take away shop across the road. My daughter and I just went to the Happy Snapper across the road. I looked to review it but couldn’t find it! We got a medium chips and gravy. They have the delicious bright yellow chicken salt and yummy gravy at great prices!! If you go to Kirra Beach- which is an awesome day out - go look for the take away shop!

Depending on weather, this is a good spot to swim, SLSC nippers put on a good Sunday morning BBQ and the little coffee shop under the surf club dose good coffee

Yet another great Gold Coast but compared to some it had a very relaxed feel with less traffic along the foreshore. Great family area along esplanade and some good cafes. We particularly like the view up the coast which was like something out of a dystopian novel!
