Kirra is a beachside suburb of the Gold Coast located close to Pelican Sands Tugun Family Beachfront Resort. Kirra is known as 'Surf Central' with the legendary Kirra barrel and spectacular surf scene. Some of the most elite international surf competitions such as the Kirra Pro are held in this stretch of ocean, attracting great crowds to the turquoise surf and expansive white beaches at Kirra.
Check out the Kirra Hill Lookout at Kirra Point, where you can enjoy spectacular views north to Surfers Paradise and south to Snapper Rocks. Kirra provides some of the most beautiful beaches on the Gold Coast. With streets full of trendy cafes and restaurants, you can stop in for a bite to eat as you enjoy the Gold Coast sunshine and surf. Alternatively, you might choose to setup a picnic on the grassy parkland which lines the beachside, the perfect spot for a family BBQ.
There is smaller surf closer to the shore which is great for swimming and beginner board riders. Waves further out from shore can swell to 1.5mo which is great for advanced surfers, however the location is also suitable for fishing, diving and boating.
