Snapper rocks is more for surfing than family beach time. Rainbow Bay has a beautiful patrolled beach perfect for the kids. You can walk around to snapper rocks and kids can paddle in the rock pools. Great spot if you want to watch talented surfers.

I spent loads of time here watching surfers enjoy the ultimate waves. The break is close to the beach, perfect photo location, another stunner at sunset or sunrise. The walk around the coastline here is also fantastic.

There is usually a good bank at Snapper Rocks. Only a small beach and picnic tables to. TOILETS ARE on the hill above the car park.

A walk to Snapper Rocks is an obligatory activity when visiting the Tweed or Coolangatta. There is plenty on which to feast the eyes, whether it be the fishermen trying their luck, the board riders (some of the best in Australia) or just taking in...More

A visit to the Gold Coast is not complete unless you check out this iconic place... I can just sit on the beach for hours watching the view and the surfers do their thing.
