Great place to sit and watch the world go by. Good access to walking paths and plenty of places to sit and relax.

This is a fairly swimmer-friendly beach. The waves are usually not too large and the beach has a surf patrol between flags. A short walk to the beach from central Broadbeach and nearby are cafes, restaurants and the well=located Kurrawa Surf Club. Our family loved...More

You can walk for miles, easily visible surf life saving towers act as markers for walkers. Sunset is a beautiful time for long walks. The beach becomes pastel in colour. As it gets dark you can return along the meandering pathway adjacent to the surf...More

Excellent beach that encapsulates all of the natural beauty of the beaches in this area, without being tarnished in the way that its northerly neighbour is compromised.

Fantastic beach with fine white sand Well patrolled so it is safe. Kurrawa Surf Club is right on the beach so easy for refreshments when it gets too hot.

Have walked along this beach many times for years. From Surfers paradise to Mermaid beach. It is well patrolled. Clean considering it is well frequented in a populated area. Always swim between the flags.

Beautiful soft sand and a patrolled safe beach. When we visited the surf was safe and very cam. Beach volley competition had just finished and an air of peace and tranquility ascended the area

The vast area of Kurrawa Beach is close to Coolangatta for services such as a multitude of restaurants, shops & Cinemas, yet you could be miles from anywhere. It is never crowded with amazing views. The beaches are exceptionally clean. Beautiful one day, perfect the...More

Kurrawa is an awesome beach. Just be careful and aware the ocean can have strong rips and under currents. The beach open and wide. Just across Broadbeach mall. And an easy walk to Pacific Fair and the Star Casino. Check it out.
