This a a beautiful beach that we had a great time for sunbathing for hours and see the romantic sunset as well. You can easily ny drinks and souvenirs at some local shop nearby.

This is a great beach and has cafes not too far away, usually not too busy making it more relaxing than Surfers main beach, and the sand is so nice and golden,

I grew up on the GC and have recently returned to live here again. Whilst Surfers Paradise has become in my opinion a tourist trap not worthy of more than a hour or two look around, the southern end of the Gold Coast and in particular Burleigh Heads has retained a village feel with local business, boutique cafes, hole-in-the-wall restaurants...

No arguments, hands down the most beautiful beach in the world with so much to do surrounding it such as restaurants, bars, sitting on the headland or walking around it to the also gorgeous tallebudgera creek

Hired bikes in Broadbeach. Loaded up picnic bag and cycled down coast like Sir Chris Hoy ( okay not strictly true). Picnic bag was only half full! Arrived in Burleigh Heads and thought what a great spot to watch the world go by. Lovely beach and had a nice chat with a friendly local. Had a nice picnic and then... More

A great beach to sit and watch the surfers, plenty of fish and chip shops nearby to get a quick lunch while you take in the sea and wonderful views towards surfers. Really nice cliff top walk to nearby creek
