Burleigh has always been my favourite beach. It's clean, plenty of sand and lots of good cafes nearby within walking distance.

What a beautiful beach. Squeaky white soft sand, crystal clear water, very friendly locals. Probably the best beach on the Gold Coast. Hard to find a park on weekends though.
