Just an easy stroll along Coolangatta Beach to the Rocks. Park (well that is your 'butt') on a rock or on the sand nearby and watch or participate in the action happening around you. People watching comes free of charge and can be so rewarding.

Snapper Rocks is a great spot to whale/dolphin watch from the shore and to of course watch the local surfers...the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and is easy to make new friends... with Rainbow Bay Surf Club onsite it is just great! Enjoy!

Snapper Rocks is a great place to sit and watch the world go by and if you are lucky enough to be there at the right time, you might even see a whale playing in the distance.
