Burleigh Heads, Gold Coast, Australia

For a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of your working week, but with plenty of things to do in Burleigh Heads, the Pacific Regis holiday apartments should be your number one choice.

Burleigh Heads is the hidden jewel of the Gold Coast, it is well known by surfers who regard it as one of the best surfing beaches in Australia. The Esplanade is main street along the beach and has parks, walk ways, playgrounds and BBQ’s. 

Pacific Regis is located at the very start of the Esplanade closest to the Burleigh Surf club and James street, the main shopping district of Burleigh Heads which contains a wide variety of restaurants and shops. The beach is directly across the road with flagged swimming areas only 200 meters walk.

Things to do in Burleigh Beach

Burleigh Heads beach stretches 2.5 kilometers from the restaurants and swimming pool at Mermaids to the headland at Nobby’s. With three patrolled areas along its length there are plenty of swimming opportunities under the watchful eyes of the lifeguard. For guests who prefer lounging poolside — inside or out, the Pacific Regis has two pools and indoor spa pools to soothe aching muscles after long and tiring theme park expeditions.

You will also find at Burleigh Heads beach a huge range of restaurants and cafes. The food culture in Burleigh is surprisingly sophisticated which you’d never pick, because after all Burleigh Heads has for a long time kept a low profile, with punters in the know keeping Burleigh to themselves.

The headland of Burleigh, locally known as “The Point”, is great for weekend barbecues after a good surf. Sunday afternoons are usually pretty entertaining, with local musicians and fire-twirlers coming out to the park beside Burleigh SLSC to strut their stuff.
