1 Coolangatta Beach
Coolangatta 4225, QLD
The Coolangatta Surf Life Saving Club (1599A) is located at the western end of the beach, 100 m east of the groyne. The club was founded in 1958 and is situated in a foreshore reserve that runs the length of the beach. The club is backed by Marine Parade, high rise apartments and the Coolangatta shopping area (Fig. 4.169).
This is a moderately safe beach owing to the usually low waves. However, even under low wave conditions, deep rip channels and troughs occur along the beach and are intensified when waves exceed 1 m. The safest swimming is in the two patrolled areas and clear of the Greenmount groyne.
