“Really quite Spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

What an amazing discovery! We had not expected such a spectacular beach when we drove up from the Gold Coast. We would certainly make this our base the next time we visit Queensland and New South Wales. It is very peaceful and safe. The waves, the sound of the waves just mesmerise you. It calms you down. There are many spots for kids to play, explore, look at snails, pick up some snails, walk on the rocks. There are shades too. There are quite a few walking trails there as well, not something which tire you but yet still allow you to enjoy your moments there. Eateries and clean up points easily available as well.

“Who needs Disneyland, snapper is better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Fantastic surf, clean and well patrolled. brilliant surf club for meals, view and service. Cannot wait to return again soon.... who needs disneyland when there is Snapper Rocks. Amazing views for sunrise and sunset, brilliant for photos, and if you stay at Carool apartments you can see over Snapper and Rainbow Bay.

“Photos explain everything”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

A 'should not be missed' attraction if you are visiting Gold Coast. Indeed a paradise for surfers and don't miss the seafood there.

“Legendary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

The spirit of Michael Peterson is ingrained in the waves from here to Kirra.
You can feel it. Read the MP story before you go and enjoy the waves.
The new crop of coolie kids are pretty amazing too.

“Best Surf Beach in Australia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

A great place for the family. You can watch the surfing and there is a very shallow safe beach for children.
