Beautiful creek with crystal clear water where you can see fishes swim around you. Perfect swim area for family with small kids, shallow water but with tidal waves. Lots of shaded area for picnic. Downside is the limited parking space.

If it's daylight, it's packed! Tallebudgera Creek is very popular for a swim. Salt water and tidal, you can swim across to the other side and walk around a very scenic point, Burleigh Headlands National Park.

Great for a stroll - you can fish, fish watch, bird watch, and people watch. There are always those out on kayaks and the like in the calm blue waters.The elevated board walk portion is a great place to avoid the sand of the beach.

Your own paradise. Best at low tide. Walk around past the little initial cove. It gets better around the corner

Not on the beach where the lifeguards patrol but further inside the creek along parts of Murlong Crescent or Awoonga Ave are ok
