Just up the road from Burleigh Heads and across a small headland known as ‘North Burleigh Headland’ is the village of Miami Beach on the Gold Coast, Queensland. With clean, wide sandy beaches, the fantastic Gold Coast surf and excellent picnic and barbeque areas, is it any wonder this is a popular choice for family holidays.
Along the foreshore of the long stretch of beach there are a couple of interesting sculptures:
The beachside pathway which is extremely popular with cyclists, joggers and walkers runs from North Burleigh Headland to Nobby Beach.
On the southern side of North Burleigh Headland is North Burleigh Surf Lifesaving Club which is a great place to sit and relax and have a drink or meal with gorgeous views like these:
The parks along the foreshore are very popular for fitness groups and personal trainers.
You can enjoy a coffee and tasty cafe-style food at Piccolo’s Cafe on the Esplanade at Miami Beach.
Miami Beach is one of the less populated beaches on the Gold Coast and boasts a safe patrolled area which is ideal for a swim or surf.
Miami Beach has a range of accommodation options such as the Caravan Park, Holiday Units, Holiday Houses and Hotels. There is a shopping centre nearby with a Coles Supermarket, the Miami Tavern and various eateries. Also nearby are Tennis Courts for hire and the Pizzey Park Olympic Swimming Pool complex.
It really is the quintessential family holiday spot on the Gold Coast that has it all. So next time you are coming to the Gold Coast for a holiday make sure you check it out.
