Very wide beach

An excellent beach for some space and privacy. You can still swim between the flags and then set yourself up on the sand to the side.

Very popular iconic surf beach. Great for the family, great for long walks. Plenty of parking, food near by. Everything you could need for a great day out. Best sunsets on the coast.

The sand is very nice, like talcum and the beaches very beautiful, and not too crowded. There is almost no shade, the problem is that is very windy so bring a heavy umbrella

Kirra Beach is stunning. We had an early morning walk, play and swim with the kids before we had to leave to return home...it's a patrolled surf beach, with plenty of room for everyone,on the never ending stretch of gorgeous white sand. Recommend Kirra any day.

Despite the lack of surf, walking the beach early in the morning was delightfully relaxing.Quite romantic strolling hand in hand with my wife. The waves lapping the shore were enough to wash away all the cares of the world!

Great place for the sport or the ones who just want to relax. The surf is good most days the beach is excellent and you can walk for miles. Good beach for families.
