Quieter than the hassle and bustle of Surfers Paradise beach. lifesavers patrolled. Little kiosk and a restaurant at the surf club. To headlands to enjoy magnificent views from. Plenty of BBQ and nice path to walk

Lovely beach and restaurants with a leafy park that comes alive with bird life in the afternoons. Parking is a problem. But worth having a look.

The lifeguards here are excellent. The beach is great for families. The surf club is a beautiful location for a meal and functions. There is plenty of room even when the beach is busy.

The beach looked sparkling clean and very busy with surfers out in the water. Lots of runners and dog walkers making the most of a beautiful morning

Lovely beach with three lifesaver points. Great for long walks. Kids had a ball surfing the waves. There is a sandbank at low tide that separates the waves with a little pool.

Beautiful, without large buildings overshadowing the beach. Easy access to the wonderful Burleigh Headland and national Park. And its possible to find a nice quiet spot, even in the height of summer.
