If you’re a surfing enthusiast, Kurrawa Beach is a must-see. For many years, Kurrawa is recognised as the host of the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships.
Beach breaks can be found along the length of the beach. Plans are on-going for the first surfing reef in Queensland at Kurrawa Beach’s Narrow Neck.
Swimming can also be had at Kurrawa thanks to sixteen lifeguard towers present along the beach – a testament to the potential risks and hazards present in Kurrawa. Rips are a constant occurrence anytime waves splash on the shoreline. It is highly advisable to swim in patrolled areas and stay away from rip holes.
Beach fishing is a fun pastime in Kurrawa Beach. Conditions are ideal when rips are present across the inner bar.
Though Kurrawa Beach is considered as Australia’s heavily developed beach, the surf is dangerous so be extra careful where and when you swim.

“This year the beach was a bit eroded, but it's still the best dip around Broadbeach. When you're not swimming the walking is excellent.”
