Situated between glistening Surfers Paradise and laid back Coolangatta, Burleigh Heads is famous for pumping surf breaks, towering pine trees and ‘to be seen’ hip dining.
Hit the Burleigh foreshore any day of the week, a hive of families and roaming entertainment, to make use of the water’s edge barbecues with fresh produce from the farmers’ market. You could also spend sunset at an alfresco restaurant people-watching or from a luxurious apartment perched high on the hill.
Spot the endless stream of surfers and fishermen day and night walking through the Burleigh Heads National Park, from The Cove to Echo Beach. Rise early and join them for a paddle in a protected corner of swell.
A visit isn’t complete without meandering the James Street shopping strip with a freshly squeezed juice in hand while admiring the handmade bespoke pieces, and The Village Markets featuring over 100 chic local designers.
