Week-end crowdUltra crowded
Best time to go is cyclone season. If packed just be patient. Ultra crowded when going off.
The atmosphere here is cool, not too many hardcore fags. Just don't drop in on locals and you'll be sweet.
This spot is good when everywhere else is packed, sometimes the swell hits big, but if Snapper is massive and you're a beginner, go to Coolie.

- Gets a nice steep beach occasionaly, if you go to the right side of kirra point, that's where it breaks the best!

Hoax! - 'Coolangatta' doesn't really exist as a seperate spot anymore, it's just part of the Snapper super bank thanks to the sand bypass project.
