What to do when you’re spending the weekend at one of Burleigh Heads best beachfront holiday apartments? Well aside from the obvious – master the waves or snatch some rays – there’s a whole host of activities to suit any style of weekender.
1. Walk Around The HeadlandBurleigh Heads headland is one of the most beautiful walks you can take on a Sunday morning. It will take you about 45 minutes and if you’re lucky, you may even spot a whale or two!
2. Learn To Surf
Wrestle into a wetsuit and join one of the Gold Coast’s best surfing instructors in the ocean. You’ll go from hanging on to the board for dear life to gliding through the sparkling waves like a pro.
3. Drink Good Coffee
Coffee goodness isn’t just delegated to Melbourne. Canteen Coffee is Burleigh’s destination for anyone who appreciates a good latte. The high-grade speciality coffee is a fusion of science and passion; basically it’s excellent.
4. Do Some Retail TherapyBikini and Me do more than just sought out your beach attire needs. Here you’ll find labels from some of Australia’s well-known brands, including Zimmerman, sass & bide, Tigerlilly and Bassike. Or for surf-inspired home wears, pop into Sean Scott Collections.
5. Get your Bongo OnThe Bongo Beat is perfect for a Sunday wind-down – or up – whatever your style. There’s fire twirling, dancing and of course, a bongo circle. Have a go at the slack lines – wobbly tightropes set up between trees to test your balance – or join in with the hula-hoopers.
6. Eat up a storm on James Street
Whether you’re in the mood for a pizza and wine from Justin’s Lane, vegetarian from Govindas or a classic beer-battered fish and chips from the Fish Hut, James Street has something for all taste buds.
7. Cold Rock With A View
A good weekend should always end with an ice cream. And thanks to the ingenious team at Cold Rock – it’s ice cream with chunks of your favourite lollies and chocolate smashed through – you can grab your flavour and take a short stroll to Burleigh Hill. Eat your ice cream and watch the lights of the Gold Coast twinkle. The perfect end to a great weekend.
With so many restaurants to choose from in Burleigh Heads, there’s no reason to turn in early during your Gold Coast holiday. Before slipping back to your beachfront apartment, grab dinner and drinks at one of the following late-night joints.
