Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast of Australia sits between Surfers Paradise to the north and Coolangatta to the south. Its beach is popular with both swimmers and surfers and the Burleigh Heads National Park offers some amazing views of the ocean. The Burleigh foreshore is home to towering fragrant pine trees characteristic of the coast and there are plenty of places to picnic or barbecue. There are also art and craft markets along with oceanfront dining at several restaurants. For the coffee lover, there’s an up-and-coming café culture to explore.
