Welcome to Burleigh Heads
The super-chilled surfie enclave of Burleigh (drop the 'Heads', you're already fond friends, right?) has long been a family favourite, but is currently having its moment in the sun. The town's gently retro vibe and palpable youthful energy epitomise both the Gold Coast's timeless appeal and its new, increasingly interesting, spirit. You'll find some of the region's best cafes and restaurants dotted around its little grid and, yes, that famous right-hand point break still pumps while the beautiful pine-backed beach continues to charm everyone who lays eyes on it.
