The North Burleigh Surf Life Saving Club, founded in 1949, is located 300 m south of South Nobby. It is situated in the reserve, with ramps leading down to the beach (1592A).

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.
