Tallebudgera Beach Gold Coast
It’s almost impossible to find calm water beaches on the Gold Coast.
Most of our beaches from Coolangatta to the Spit are open to the elements, and the waves, the tides and the rips change from day to day.
That’s why we love Tallebudgera Creek Beach.
It’s the only beach on the Gold Coast where parents can enjoy a dip with the kids in turquoise tropical waters without having to brace for a hit from a giant breaker.
You don’t have to worry about toddlers being swallowed by a rogue wave, and little ones can build sandcastles and dig by the waters edge without fear.
This white-sand beach has crystal clear, aqua-coloured water, no matter what the day. There’s a lovely outlook over the Burleigh Heads National Park across the water too.
Tallebudgera Beach is our very own tropical beach, right here on the Gold Coast.
Hot Tip #1 for Tallebudgera Creek QLD
Our hot tip is to GO EARLY.
The only problem with Tallebudgera Beach is that the carpark fills up before 9am, and it’s chockablock with people for most of the day. Take a dip in the early hours, or visit when the lunchtime rush subsides.
See for yourself why we love it.
Tallebudgera Creek Walk to Burleigh Hill & Echo Beach
Don’t miss the Tallebudgera Creek Walk. Cross the Tallebudgera Creek bridge and turn right onto the bush pathway. Follow this around the coastline through Burleigh Heads National Park to Burleigh Hill, one of Gold Coast’s most iconic places to picnic and propose.
On your way back, stop at Echo Beach just before you reach the end of the path. Take the rocky path down to find another of Gold Coast’s best kept secret beaches. We love it here too.
