This beach are near to road, near carpark lots and shops is a few steps away. We did not touch the water coz its cold for our tropical skin but we love the wave that hits the rocky part of the beach, the sound is soothing~~~

Love walking along the sea front. Lots of places to stop and relax and just watch the sea rolling by. Very relaxing and love the fresh sea air. Plenty of little coffee places to stop at and have a refreshing cold drink are a barista made coffee.Just love this place.

Good waves, only ashamed of how crowdy it is. Also, jellyfish can be a problem here. Though, the whole environment it is really good

After visiting Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach - and all the congestion/people/high rises, what a nice change! A smaller, more laid-back beach/area, less congested, very laid-back. Great waves at Coolangatta, Kirra, Rainbow Bay, Snapper Rocks; We were watchers, and really enjoyed it! Twin Towns Casino right there also.

The beach is a bit more exposed to the open ocean swell than neighbouring beaches but if you are looking for a quiet beach to sun bake and swim/body surf, Coolie is the go.
