Kirra is a much loved place on the Gold Coast for surfers and those wanting a much quieter Gold Coast beach experience.
We love the area as it is just a short stroll around the headland to Coolangatta Beach, our favourite place on the Goldie.
I grew up hearing about Kirra as I had a group of surfer friends. It was the place to go and you were not considered cool until you had made the journey there.
Well, I can finally call myself COOL!
Kirra Point is where the surfing action is. Apparently it is the home of one of the fastest barrels you could ever hope to surf. Something akin to the perfect wave. No wonder the Billabong Pro Surfing competition has been held numerous times here. Be warned if the swell is over 1.5 metres you will be battling the crowds for a taste of surfing nirvana.
Kirra Beach is a perfect location for families, being a much quieter, less touristy and so more peaceful place along the Gold Coast beach strip.
We stayed at the Kirra Surf Apartments during our stay on the Gold Coast in August.
They are quite newly renovated apartments and tastefully decorated Beach Cottage style. I felt very at home and comfortable.We had an old friend visit while we were there and enjoyed relaxing on the couch, catching up over a glass of wine and looking out over to the beach.
It was also Savannah’s first birthday. We enjoyed a long beach walk with her to a special breakfast at our favourite Raw Foods Cafe, a coffee catch up a friend, a birthday cake in the apartment, followed by the Yanguwah Aboriginal cultural show in the evening.
With the location right across the beach, Kirra Surf Apartments are a perfect Gold Coast accommodation choice. It’s also close to local attractions we love such as the
It’s also close to local attractions we love such as the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Currumbin Creek, the Hinterland, Burleigh Heads and only 5 minutes from Gold Coast airport. Plus, you can walk along the foreshore to some awesome kid parks, restaurants and bars.
The apartments are fully self-contained, which is an accommodation must if you want to reduce travel costs. The apartment complex has BBQ facilities, a gym, sauna and an outdoor swimming pool.
The girls felt the place rocked for hide and seek and singing and dancing shows on the verandah.
I LOVED waking up to the sun rising over the water from my bed. Life is magical when viewed in this way.
Here are some more views of the Kirra Beach Apartments. We recommend it as a great place to stay on the Gold Coast apartment.
