Burleigh beach is a straight, 2 km long section of sand running between South Nobby headland and the larger Burleigh Heads (Fig. 4.153). The beach is paralleled by The Esplanade, which has apartments and high rise buildings on its western side, with a grassy foreshore reserve located between the road and the beach.

Swimming

The safest swimming is in the two patrolled areas at North Burleigh and Burleigh. There are usually six to eight rips along the beach, together with the permanent rips at each end, so use care if swimming and stay on the inner portion of the attached bar, clear of the rip channels and outer trough.

Surfing

'Burleigh Heads' is one of Australia's top point breaks, with long, fast right-handers peeling over the sand and boulders that line the head. The beach also has beach breaks, that are best on the outer bar.

Fishing

There are usually good rip holes along the beach, particularly against the rocks at each end.

General

A readily accessible beach backed by a continuous reserve, with two surf lifesaving clubs and lifeguard towers to provide added protection.
