Burleigh Heads provides one of the best waves on the Gold Coast. A nice right hand point break that can hold a larger swell and provide deep barrels, workable faces and long rides. Burleigh Point is protected from the southerly winds and can provide fun waves throughout the whole day, one the bigger days the take off point is at the cove positioned at the top of the headland but on smaller days the inside rock break can provide some fun waves. Expect a local crowd and a lot of paddling.
