Nice end of town, lots of parks and grass around if you need it, plus a ton of places to eat. The beach is clean and you can walk for miles.

We stayed in Surfers Paradise for the past few days before driving to Kirra Beach. Conclusion is that we all prefer Kirra Beach. We find Kirra Beach is well equipped with necessities for picnics. Somehow, the "feel" is different, more family oriented. The sea is...More

I imagine this will be a busy beach in the summer. Lots of space to spread out in the winter tho. Interesting walk through the trees.

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
