South of the Surfers Paradise tourist strip, Kurrawa Beach has the most extensive beach reserve of all the Gold Coast beaches.
Part of the 16km main stretch of Gold Coast beachfront, a wide reserve runs for 1.5km behind the beach and incorporates the Kurrawa Surf Life Saving Club, together with a range of public facilities.
Rips are present whenever waves are breaking along this stretch of Gold Coast beachfront and deep rip channels may run out from the shoreline. Swim only in patrolled areas and avoid the rip holes and outer trough. Stay close inshore and on the attached portion of the bar.
This stretch of beach offers a huge range of accommodation, attractions and facilities, together with the surf lifesaving clubs and lifeguard towers, as well as 16 km of beautiful beach and surf. However the surf is hazardous, so be careful as to when and where you swim.
