There's always something happening at Burleigh - surfing, aerobics, walking through the National Park, or just getting a coffee at The Nook and watching the Pacific Ocean roll in. The only downside is the lack of parking, but at least that keeps the crowd numbers down.

Great Playgrounds all over the foreshore, some have more shade then others.. Lots of people, families buzzing along.. overlooking the beach, great little coffees and food joints near by.. Great place to spend a day. Beach is very clean, friendly people everywhere.. Over all a very pleasant few days we have had in Burleigh.

This beach area has lovely little shops, viewing areas and safe swimming - ideal for families. It is 10 minutes away from Coolangatta Airport and 5 minutes from Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. You can catch the bus from Surfers Paradise which would take about 20 minutes. The Burleigh Heads Surf Club has tremendous views over the beach and has lunch specials.... More

During my short visit to the Gold Coast I stayed in Burleigh Waters so this beach was local. I did visit Surfer's Paradise but this beach was so much better. Calmer, less crowded but equally clean, there are places to eat and drink nearby and it's not as pricey as Surfers.

great beach well looked after by all, the park behind has heaps of facilities that are great for family outings, bbq's and visits with the kids. Just watch out for the guys sleeping in the bushes...

We walk there a lot as the beach is an easy walk- usually on edge with hard sand and there are lots of cafes etc in Burleigh itself.

A beautiful headland with sandy and rocky beaches with great grassed areas giving stunning views or surfing and great at sunsets.The headland walk is easy and well worth the effort and at the right time you can be rewarded with spotting some whales or dolphins. Whether you have only 15 minutes or the whole day this is not a place... More
