A PIECE of Kirra's history has been unearthed.
Little groyne, just north of Kirra Surf Club, was last visible in February 2003, but parts of this historical landmark are now being exposed.
"This is due to erosion and recent wave action," chairman of Kirra Point Inc. Wayne Dean said.
"Once the tip of little groyne is exposed more sand will also begin to move west".
However, other locals speculate works to extend the big groyne are effecting sand flow to the little groyne.
Miles Street Little groyne was built in 1975, following the construction of big groyne, which was built off Kirra point to contain sand on Coolangatta beach.
Local Susan Stead who moved to Kirra 25 years ago said "It's lovely to finally see the beach coming back again".
