“Great beach with a view and amenities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

Protected by the southern headland the beach is always pleasant and very popular. Parking can be a trial if you arrive late morning, but not an issue if you come via the Surfside buses that ply the Gold Coast Highway. There is an abundance of cafes and shops just across the road and accommodation is also close at hand. There is also a large parkland area right adjacent to the beach with BBQ's and gazebo's if you are an early riser or patient and eat a late lunch.

“A beautiful beach but very crowded”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

The heading says it all. The walk up to the point is nice with beautiful views. I'd avoid it on a weekend.

“Take the coastal route”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Visiting Burleigh Heads, just near Surfersparadise, is more then just watch the surfboys and girls.
There is also a "rainforrest" nearby ( you see it, cannot miss) with nice trails to walk before you enter the other site with Echo or Secret Beach. Very nice walk throught he forrest.
And a reward entering Echo beach

“My favourite beach on the Gold Coast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

I'm not a surfer but I find Burleigh beach to be my favourite on the coast. The scenery is beautiful, views from the top of the hill are breathe taking and the shops near by are quiet different to those if which you would find in say Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach. It's almost comparable to byron just less bohemian.

“Beautiful Beaches in this area.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

I like the quieter area without huge crowds. Life Savers available at regular intervals. Burleigh Heads is most popular but go up the coast a little for quieter beaches. Plenty of parking most days even at the weekends.
