As I have said in a review of the Spit, we biked around the GC keeping to the quiet roads and paths. GC seems to look after cyclists. In the ride we took from Broadbeach to Burleigh Heads (about 20 km), the route was either on cycle paths by the beach and shared with foot traffic or on a stretch... More

Whether you like swimming, surfing, paddle boarding, sun bathing or just walking along the beach you'll love Burleigh Heads. Beautifully kept golden sand beach, usual surf guards & safe swimming areas. Along the promenade you'll find cafés, ice cream etc. so no need to leave the beach & go to the nearby shops for a quick cuppa. Great views interesting... More

Beach has good waves for surfers but blends down to patrolled bathing beaches and areas to fish. Lovely Surf Club with yummy breakfast,lunch and tea.Awesome Parks for the children on the beach too and close to cafe's and restaurants.

I just loved being right over the ocean, with all the facilities i needed and far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the busy Surfers Paradise , i needed a quiet get away and it fitted me perfectly.

I liked the fact that Burleigh is away from the business of Surfers Paradise. It was much quieter and more laid back.

When I visited Burleigh Heads Beach, it was hardly the optimum time to see it, as it was still late winter on the Gold Coast. The beach was deserted, construction equipment was doing grading of the beach, and large hoses were pumping water onto the beach. Even so, this beach is well-situated for visitors, as there's a great lunch venue... More
