I live at Palm Beach on the Gold Coast, which is 5 mins drive from Burleigh Beach. I love walking at Burleigh, it is just beautiful, many locals walk every morning and there's lots of activities going on in the surrounding parklands, many free activities run by council daily. There is nothing. Enter than an early morning walk at Burleigh... More

Went for a walk on the beach at sunset. So many people sitting on the grass watching the sunset. Lots of surfers. Huge beach.

The council have laid it on for Burleigh and North Burleigh beaches. Facilities and amenities are some of the best I've seen. The sand is white and clean and the beaches are all patrolled. At the time we were there, the surf was rough but thats expected at this time of year...Beautiful part of the world

patrolled beach, child-friendly in wave-wash at low tide but surf too strong at high tide, lots of sand-play space.

Burleigh Beach is a great family beach, it has sand, rock pool for the children to look for crabs and other sea creatures, showers toilets and Justins Park is great with the covered playground, lots of grass, covered table and benches , barbecues and hot water and plenty of shady trees. Just perfect for the whole family

Burleigh Heads is a nice beach, but no big deal, though. The thing about the beach is its right corner. The view from there is really beautiful, specially at sunset. The waves are supposed to be very good behind the rocks on the right tip of the beach. A right handed point break, which, I've been told, can be as... More

Best surf in the GC! Low tide offers beautiful shells in the rocks and lining the beach. High tide offers the best surf swimming. As you lie on the warm, golden sand, you can watch surfers out far practising, the soothing ocean waves or sometimes even whales in the distance. Burleigh is a little quieter than Surfers Paradise but still... More

All beaches maybe the same - sand, the sun, the surf and the people. Burleigh Heads is this and much more - nice grass to lie on, play ground for the kids , amazing walkway and to top it up some cool places to sit and catch a grub , sports bar et al. Scenic hill on one side differentiates... More
