A beautiful spot to visit. Powdery white sand and crystal blue water. Lifeguard on duty. Appeared to be popular with locals and tourists alike both kids and adults. However wasn't crowded on our visits.

Many international tourists are accustomed to reading about the famous Surfers Paradise Beach...yes Surfers Paradise is a beautiful beach HOWEVER if you are a local of some 50 years you know the true jewels in the crown lie further south....in particular Burleigh Beach....this area is unsurpassed as it encompasses the beautiful beaches of both North Burleigh and Burleigh Beach, but...

Can stop off at Broadbeach to look at the shops, maybe spend a few hours at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre. I digress however. Perhaps after a bit of shopping head for Burleigh. Plenty of parking along the Esplanade. More shops and numerous... More

Forget about Surfers Paradise, Burleigh is 100 times better with a beautiful cove beach, absolute oceanfront dining, great bars, cafes and boutique shopping. This is where you'll find the Gold Coast locals mixing with the more savvy tourists because Burleigh still has that beach town feeling. On your next trip to the Gold Coast, try Burleigh!
