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
