Beast weather conditions for Burleigh for quite a number of years. We have been holidaying at Burleigh for many years at different times during the year & this has been the best for a long while, with beautiful sunny days and cool nights.

Compared with surfers paradise, BH is much quiet, cozy and easy to establish personal connection. And the distance view of Gold Coast downtown full of high-rises are very impressive too!

The best view of the Gold Coast is at the top of Goodwin Terrace just before the entrance to the park where the best walking tracks await you either going uphill for a great workout or beachside for taking in the...

We stayed at Surfer's Paradise, so after visiting there, we found that at Burleigh Beach, there are more local families just relaxing, and has less of a commercial feel to it. Still beautiful white sand and the waves seem calmer and less restrictions needed for the lifeguards compared to Surfer's Paradise. Also has a grass area for picnics!

Burleigh beach is a sheltered spot popular with surfers, families and bathers of all ages from the senior daily dip to the perennial tanners.

I see this is a "Traveler's choice" selection, and I completely agree! The sand is perfect and the water is clear.

Clean and well maintained. I am not a strong swimmer but felt safe. White squeaky sand and not very crowded. Dog friendly too. But plenty of areas for those that don't like dogs.

Burleigh is one of my favourite beaches - great for early morning or late afternoon walks. Well patrolled by life guards and close to good coffee shops as well.
