Kirra Beach Local's Guide

Kirra Beach Local's Guide

When staying at any of our Gold Coast Tourist Parks, you experience life like a local, and there are no luckier locals than the ones at Kirra Beach. To help our guests experience the best of the life on the coast, we thought we would create a local’s guide to our favourite beaches, restaurants and places to see.

Beaches Beaches and more Beaches

Whether it is Kirra, Coolangatta, Greenmount beach or Rainbow Beach, we are located near some of the cleanest beaches and pure blue waters in the world. The best part is they're all within walking distance of each other. Weave between iconic cafes and restaurants as you make your way around one of the best stretches of the coastline you've ever laid eyes on. For those who love to surf, the famous snapper rocks is located just around the corner, and if you're lucky enough, you may even see local surfers Mick Fanning, Parko or Steph Gilmore catching a wave or two.

Local Restaurants and Cafes

Kirra and Coolangatta host an array of local restaurants, with the new Sibling's restaurant opening right on Kirra's beachfront. If you want to live like a local, you can never go past the good old-fashioned surf club. See our list of favourite restaurants and cafes below.
