Not surprised it is the best beach on the Gold Coast

Burleigh Heads beach is patrolled, clean, safe and quiet. The surf is not huge so good for boogie boards.

A lovely place to chill by the beach. We spent a day there ... was lovely. The swings and slides are a great place to hang out after a swim at the beach ...

Beautiful sheltered beach with outstanding views to Surfers Paradise Highrisers. So many things to do, swim, surf, or dabble your toes. Paved paths for walking or biking & special exercise equipment circuit.....or relax, have a BBQ with your friends or family & chill enjoying year round great weather & views.

Burleigh Heads is in my view the best beach and location on the Gold Coast. The headlands are simply spectacular watching the waves roll in. Parking therefore is a real issue so arrive early. It has a great foreshore for the family to play and relax if the beach and sun become too much.

Burleigh is one of our favourite parts of the Gold Coast. It is partly modern and partly old school 70's beachside village. The beach and foreshore are stunning, and lots of trees and parks, a real family feel. It feels a bit less hectic than broadbeach and surfers but there is still great cafes and restaurants. There is not as... More

I spent a great deal of my childhood holidays at Burleigh Heads with my parents and two brothers and really learnt to enjoy the great surf and for the still water the close proximity of Tallebudgera Creek. We even built a holiday home on the highway. Burleigh, I believe has the best beach and surf anywhere. It is situated half... More

Have been visiting Burleigh Beach since childhood. It's my local and I need get tired of it. The walk between Burleigh and Miami is easy and flat and it's got patrolled beaches for families. There's a surf club at both ends too. Definitely a winner!

This saying was created with Burleigh Heads in mind, for sure! Shhhhhh . . . Please don't tell anyone about our stunningly beautiful beach. This is a very safe beach with year round life guard on duty. Remember to swim between the flags. It is a very clean beach and there are lots of vantage points. You can sit and... More
