It's the " Surfers" favourite place, famous for surf carnivals etc. not much of a beach, beach baking is better around the corner near a Tower #1. Great waves, gotta dodge those rocks.

I went to host a memorial for my brother and celebrate him at his favourite spot for a surf. The club was amazing. Beautiful friendly people looking after everything we needed. And while you remember things you have one of the ultimate ocean views in the world. Don't miss out on this great place.

One of the most popular surf places on the coast, Snapper Rocks is a beautiful spot with a very attractive white sand beach. The coastal walk around past here is really one of the most beautiful walks anywhere.

Lovely lovely spot and worth a stroll. Watching the surfers from land so close with Surfers Paradise as a backdrop is truly remarkable and a great photo opportunity!

The seascapes and views are spectacular, as are the sexy surfers chasing the waves relentlessly, really incredible to watch. Take a dip in the crisp clear water, it's heaven on earth

Something very special about Snapper.Most fo the time you are lucky to see dolphins swim by as the waves crash on the rocks. Go around the corner to the little cove and see Froggy! Walk up the path to the top of D'bar hill for great views.
