Burleigh Heads and local Gold Coast beaches

Gemini Court Holiday Apartments is situated next to beautiful surf and calm water beaches. Our Burleigh Heads accommodation is a stroll to Burleigh beach, Echo Beach on Tallebudgera Creek and an easy walk to North Burleigh or Miami if you feel like an adventure.

Burleigh Heads beach

Voted a top 10 Australian beach by Tripadvisor fans

Known simply as Burleigh to locals, this beautiful stretch of sand is popular with both swimmers as the beach is patrolled year round, and surfers for its world-famous break. Even when other beaches on the Gold Coast are choppy, the protection of Burleigh Headland offers a great place for a dip, and when the surfs up it’s not uncommon to see keen surfers literally jogging to the point anxious not to miss out on a single wave.  Burleigh beach is right on the doorstep of Gemini Court Holiday Apartments and you can check out the surf from the ocean view balcony of your Burleigh Heads accommodation.

The Burleigh foreshore is fringed with a grassy strip and beautiful Norfolk pines.  Children’s play parks are dotted alongside the ocean pathway, and well-maintained community bbqs and amenities create the perfect spot for a picnic with family or friends.

Echo Beach and Burleigh Headland National Park

A stay at Burleigh Heads is not complete without a walk around Burleigh Headland National Park and, as Gemini Court Holiday Apartments is situated on the headland, it really is a stroll from your Burleigh accommodation to the entrance of the park.   Wild, spectacular coastal scenery framed by dramatic volcanic columns and boulders leads you to a more tranquil pathway through rainforest and pandanus groves teeming with nature down to beautiful, sheltered Echo Beach on the banks of Tallebudgera Creek.  A hidden gem, known only to locals, take your kids for a play in the shaded, sandy area and a swim in the creek.

North Burleigh and Miami

North Burleigh beach is a charming, patrolled beach also framed by a headland offering wonderful views. Over the headland is a cute cafe and quieter Miami beach.  If you feel like a swim away from the crowds, pack a picnic and ask the friendly staff at your Gemini Court Burleigh Heads accommodation for directions.  We can even lend you some buckets and spades for the kids!
