All the Gold Coast beaches are worth visiting but there's something a bit special about Burleigh. It somehow feels more 'friendly' than some other places: Children playing, dogs being walked, a nice mix of younger and older visitors - and a distinct lack of 'cool dudes' with flashy cars.

Nice place to stop in and have a look at. We did the walk over the hill from Tallebudgera Tourist park there seems to be a lot of accommodation, shops eating places toilets and some interesting aboriginal information, worth a look.

Clean, fine sand with beach patrols and showers on the Esplanade made this a pleasant place to relax, take a stroll or just sit and gaze at the world. It was not too brash or over commercialised.

Very clean & in a quieter area of the Gold Coast. If you enjoy the outdoors, this beach is very popular for people who are into fitness. There are a lot of joggers & people out walking their dogs. Lots of surfers taking advantage of the morning swell. Very Beautiful!

I love how the locals come to the beach park in the evenings and have picnics and bbq's - such a great lifestyle.

Burleigh beach is family friendly, clean & safe, with one of the best surf breaks. There are council orginased activities at low costs or free. The area is ideal for walking, running and bike riding. the beach has life guards 7 days a week, with volunteer lifesavers in the summer months at weekends.

Burleigh heads beach is a great place to spend a relaxing afternoon. Sit back in the sun or go for a wander around the esplanade. Once your finished there's plenty of places to grab a bit to eat from.
