Our very first blog and we would like to welcome you to our home on the Gold Coast, Burleigh Heads.
Not only is Burleigh Heads simply an amazing place for pumping surf it is just the place to breathe, recharge, and relax. No dress code required, it is as laid back and cruisy as you want it to be.
The weather in the mornings and evenings is a little cooler now, but when the sun shines there is absolutely nothing better than grabbing your towel and sunblock and diving straight in, or even better…wax your board, the surf is your oyster, those waves are beckoning.
For those who love to chill and relax, Burleigh Hill has the best views anywhere on the Gold Coast, in fact, all the way to Surfers Paradise. Why not take a stroll up the beach and make your way towards Burleigh Heads National Park. Plant yourself between the trees and you have the perfect area for a picnic or BBQ and the best spot to catch some surf or take some stunning beach photos. Head a little further up the hill and you have two walking tracks: walk the scenic ocean view route around the hill passing Tallebudgera Creek (a perfect spot to take a dip or kayak) or head up Burleigh Heads National Park taking in the ocean view lookout and rainforest track route for some simply spectacular views.
There are so many unique shops, cafes, and restaurants in Burleigh Heads, here are just a few (there are many) places that David recommends you check out whilst in Burleigh Heads. Just say David sent you😊
