“Family Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

It is the best beach we have ever been to. Great or families.
There were 3 sets of flags to swim between the beach was very clean.
There was lots of shade in the afternoons so we were able to build sandcastles in comfort and not stress about getting burnt.
Beautiful sunrises in the mornings which I highly recommend to get up early to view. I was there in April and getting up and walking on the beach at 5.30am was perfect. Only a few locals jogging/walking but mostly you had the beach to yourself for half an hour.
This beach is beautiful and best for families.

“Burleigh Heads Beach - clean and safe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We loved the morning jog and workout along the esplanade then a swim at the beach across from the Southern Cross - Lots of "its great to be alive" moments

“A lot to offer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Lovely place for a walk, so much is happening and there are many cheap or free exercise classes offered throughout the week by Gold Coast Council.

“Good body surfing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

This is also a really nice beach to go to, be early on the week ends though as it gets really busy. Plenty of places to have a picnic lunch.

“Still a gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Burleigh Heads is still a beautiful area even after the storms. Beware of beach conditions, very strong waves, swim between the flags. Great variety of resturants, within walking distance to apartments. Some of our group found the beds very firm but I liked them.
