Burleigh is best

Beautiful and clean gold sand, a cool park under the Pine trees, good park facilities for picnic and fun activities and exercise. A place where families, groups, seniors, children can enjoy, safe and close to food shops & surf clubs. Plenty of carpark for free. Stunning sunrise and full moon.

I have just spent 2 weeeks opposite Burleigh Beach and what a totally fabulous beach it is. Walking along it watching the sun come up, so much activity happening from daylight to dark. Beautiful to just sit and watch the waves, the surfers, and do some serious reading or thinking!! Surf clubs both ends with nice restaurants. Love it.
