Margate Beach

I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.

Margate Beach is the southern half of the stretch of sand in Redcliffe that also includes the popular Suttons Beach. It's separated from the latter by a small breakwall, but also by a completely different atmosphere for a beach so close to the action-packed Suttons Beach.

By no means is Margate Beach deserted. In fact, it draws quite a lot of people. I visited twice recently in the middle of winter and both times the boardwalk was quite busy each time. They were walking, cycling and running along the boardwalk promenade.

Don't let this photo fool you, the boardwalk is actually quite popular


One thing Margate Beach has that Suttons Beach doesn't is its series of shelters that jut out over the sand. These all have bench seats and allow you to relax as you watch the bay. I spent a quiet evening in one watching the colours over on the horizon change above Moreton Island in the distance as the sun set, which was quite enjoyable.

There is limited parking along the back of Margate Beach (just curbside) but since it's mainly used as a walkway you can park at either end, such as in the car park that stretches along the back of Suttons Beach further up.
