Walking along here at sunset is amazing. So many people doing the same thing, really social. Surfers out doing there thing while others skate,bike and stroll the walkway. During the day is also a must. Sitting in between the rocks on the point is a great spot to relax.

Kirra has always been a wonderfully wide beach and with a lot of new sand on it has widened it even more.

Great wide beach for kids (although it's a way up to the flagged area) with plenty of safe lagoons to play in. Great beach side walks and a pleasant stroll up to the top of the Memorial Park. Plenty of eating options nearby too.

We walked along here today from cooly, the walkway along the road to the beach is easy to access and there was plenty of room for laying on the beach. Usually really good surf but not today.

Long stretches of sand. Safe swimming. Perfect for landing from sky jumps. Lovely restaurants and local food. Plenty of space.

Walked for couple hours, went one way on the beach and back on the bike path. Great views of the sea from the bike track. Plenty of eateries and coffee shops. The walk from Kirra beach to rainbow beach was beautiful, even saw some whales frolicking around in the distance. 👌🏼

Living only 5 minutes from this beautiful beach is great. Often walk from kirra to tugun and back most mornings just on sunrise. During the day is great for families. Love bringing the grandkids here when they come to visit. Sunrise rarely disappoints.

Along with Coolangatta Beach, Kirra is a beautiful beach and very popular for swimming and surfing and walking, Kirra Surf club is on the beach. Coffee Shops just across the road. Sky Divers land on Kirra Beach too!
