Suttons-Margate Beach is one of the more open and popular swimming beaches on the Redcliffe Peninsula
Redcliffe Point forms the northern boundary of the straight 2km long Suttons-Margate Beach, which terminates in the south at Scotts Point. The Redcliffe Peninsula surf club is located at the northern tip of the beach, with a car park and picnic area on the point.
The beach consists of a sandy high tide beach and shallow low tide sand flat. The northern half is backed by a large foreshore reserve called Suttons Beach, with car parking and all facilities for beachgoers. The southern Margate half of the beach is backed by a continuous seawall and walkway, then the main road. Toward the southern end is a boat ramp and then an old dressing pavilion. South of the pavilion a newer seawall has been constructed to protect the beach and bluffs at Scotts Point from erosion.
The protection of Moreton Island means that this bay beach sees very little ocean swell and is a relatively safe swimming option for families.
Suttons Beach is one of the more open and popular swimming beaches on the peninsula and is patrolled by the Redcliffe Peninsula surf club.
