Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Go Sunday night for the best vibe on the Goldcoast! Acro yoga, fire dancers, byo drumming. Dancing. All free and not formally organized but it happens every Sunday night on the grass lawn inbetween beach and town
As a beach itself the sand was not as good as Broadbeach but the pavilion gives this beach a very Bondi feel

Great beach spot just south of the main surfers paradise areas; the beach has plenty of sand, not rocky, with approx 3 patrolled areas along the strip. Parking is a little bit tricky with spots along the actual beach area limited, however there seems to be a fair bit of parking in nearby streets.

The north Burleigh life saving club is at the northern end of the beach with a bar and meals. There are also some beautiful grassy, shady spots along the strip to sit and picnic etc, and a kids play ground. At the southern end of the beach are some great little shops to explore.

Lovely beach that I would definitely recommend

The sand was clean, water was crystal clear. The surf was pretty rough with the sandbar, but still great to swim in. There weren’t as many people here as you would see at surfers paradise or Broadbeach, so you could find a spot easily enough. We left in the afternoon when the wind picked up, it blew our umbrella away! Overall though, really nice beach, would definitely come again.

We visited Burleigh after recommendations from friends. The beach is lovely and family friendly however the flag area is rather small and as a result packed in January! With the surf club to serve food, big grassy area for picnics and clean amenities this is a great family friendly beach option although the waves do crash. The lack of beach experience was a problem with the 5 & 7 year old who required help to navigate the choppy waves so not sure its great for younger swimmers who aren’t experienced.

Surrounded by a fantastic variety of food options and holiday apartments it’s a lovely beach as the basis for hours of family friendly fun!

Visited this area on Christmas Day and it was surprisingly quiet. Such a beautiful area, well maintained bbq and picnic areas, clean beach and lovely water. Amazing beach, must see if you’re on the Gold Coast 🏖

Burleigh Heads beach has always been highly regarded as a lovely beach and a family orientated beach.
Nothing has changed.
I love it here and feel more at peace than most places in the world. Can't wait to go back in February.

Haven’t dipped a toe in salt water for years ( country bumpkins ) , but hard to resist on this gorgeous stretch of sand. Water temp was 25c ; perfect. Lots of Nipper ( junior lifesavers) activity each day, great to watch. Surfers, swimmers , dog walkers, scantily clad beauties, I only glanced once, honest lol.
Surf club had cold beer and pretty decent fish and chips. Just need to win Lotto and make the move

The weather does what it chooses and the life guards managed it well. But the beach is quite choppy with high volumes of seaweed bits. It is almost impossible to go for a swim without being covered in the slimy flakes.
Quite clean though, and well maintained. Just be aware of the natural conditions before going.

I haven't been to Burleigh for many years. So special to be back to enjoy the pristine beach & surrounds. Certainly a lot more crowded than years ago, although it was the tail end of 'Schoolies'. Will be back to enjoy the beach and the walk around the Headlands. Glorious place. Stayed in our Motorhome in the Burleigh Beach Caravan Park.

Burleigh Heads is one of my favourite beaches on the Gold Coast . It offers something for everyone. The gorgeous pandanus trees give plenty of shade & the surf is amazing with fabulous right breaks hitting the rocky formations beneath Rick’s Shores restaurant.
