I have been visiting Burleigh Beach most of my life and still think it's hard to beat with the beautiful headland, golden sand and great surf. Get there early if you want a car park though especially on the weekends!

I love QLD & the Gold Coastm but I love Burleigh most. There are many reasons: It is residential and a real community, not a city. Broadbeach and Surfers are close. The Tweed area and Hinterland plus Coolangatta not far away. Really good for a 2 or 3 weeks holidays in QLD.,

Burleigh esplanade has a 2 kilometre track that is bike and pedestrian friendly. The beautiful scenery of Burleigh beach is unsurpassed. I exercise there every morning from 6am with a personal trainer that is hired by the local council, it's very challenging and only costs $3.

The waves here were sick! Definitely have to swim between the flags and it is not overcrowded. A very nice beach on your backdoor step

Burleigh Beach from North to South is the best beach in the world. Combined with a national park headland this is truly an amazing stretch of coastline. Might be a bit biased cause I live here
