Insiders Guide: Palm Beach with Sarah Caruana

We asked Sarah Caruana, Owner of Crystal Pacific to share her insider tips on what she loves about Palm Beach Queensland.

alluxia: What do you love most about living in Palm Beach Queensland?
Sarah: The location! We are so grateful to be so close to the beautiful beach and amazing Tallebudgera Creek. To be able to walk through the Burleigh Head National Park to Burleigh heads and all it has to offer is amazing.

The restaurant that best shows off your region...
The Collective is a beautiful venue for day or night. It has 5 different restaurants under one roof. The vibe is amazing and the variety of food is perfect for groups.

When friends are in town I take them for a drink at...
The Burleigh Pavilion has the best view overlooking the beautiful Burleigh Beach where you can watch the surfers do their thing.

Couples wanting a romantic dinner for two should consider...
Balboa is the most amazing Italian and a beautiful venue, perfect for that romantic evening..

For the perfect gift or memento, I'd recommend shopping at...
White Bohemian. An original store in Palm Beach with beautiful clothes, gifts and wares.

The best markets can be explored at...
Palm Beach Farmers Market is a great spot on a Saturday morning.

For great art and culture...
Dust Temple in Currumbin, a beautiful spot for coffee and some local art.

 

The best breakfast spot is...
We are huge fans of Custard Canteen, by the Tallebudgera Creek, known for their delicious Portuguese Tarts and baked goods. The breakfast menu is great and the location is just as good. Barefoot Barista is also one of our favourite spots for a mouth-watering breakfast.

The best coffee can be found at...
Moto Espresso, just a stroll from us.

The best free activity in the region is...
Surfing the Palm Beach Reef. SUP along the Tallebudgera Creek, or just spending the day with the family at the Creek.

If it's raining...
Head to James St Burleigh Heads for a shop and a coffee.
