My husband and I will be visiting the Gold Coast
for a quick holiday for 4 nights in mid February. We will be celebrating our Wedding Anniversary. I am trying to decide between Broadbeach and Burleigh Heads. We just want to relax for 4 days, not planning on doing too much. We want to enjoy the sunshine, beaches, restaurants and maybe a little shopping one day. Would probably prefer a quiet location with less people on the beaches. I don't particulary like having to swim between the flags with heaps of kids on body boards banging in to you all the time, not my idea of a relaxing swim! We won't have a car so would like to be walking distance to nice restaurants as don't plan on cooking.
Burleigh Heads looks nice and I like the idea of being close to the Burleigh Heads National Park for walks. This area gets alot of mention for surfing but as we don't surf, is it just as nice for swimming? If we stayed here are there nice eating places as I don't want to have to use the bus alot to get to nice eating places. Don't mind busing one day to Pacific Fair for shopping but thats probably it.
I know we will enjoy our holiday where ever we stay but it would be nice to hear from people who know both areas and get your thoughts. Whats the difference between both places? Cheers
