Best beach to propose

I will be heading out on a three week vacation to Australia with my girlfriend in about 10 days. Our first stop is 5 nights in Surfers Paradise, where I plan to propose. I'm scouring the internet looking for places that would work well for this special occasion. Just curious if anybody knows of any beaches near Surfers that may be a little more secluded and romantic than the main beach? We are not planning on renting a car in this location, so I need somewhere that can be reached by mass transit or bicycle. I'm also open to suggestions if there are any other spots that someone can recommend besides a beach. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

I would catch a surfside bus to Burleigh Headland. It's not that far from Surfers.

It is a National Park and has a number of beautiful walks through the rainforest and quite a few beach look-outs along the way. They are spectacular in places.

You can't go wrong ;)

Good Luck. I will try to think of a few more options.

Thank you both very much for the info! I did some research based on your advice, and I think Burleigh headland would be a perfect spot. I truly appreciate your insight into this region, and am more excited than ever for our trip!
