Beaches on the Peninsula

Scarborough does have its very own gorgeous park-fringed beach directly across the road from Scarborough Beach Resort. However it is a good idea to explore some of the other lovely beaches on Redcliffe Peninsula.

Clontarf Beach – with its sprawling expanse of bayside walkways and bikeways, plentiful parks and picnic facilities and designated off-leash areas, Clontarf is an ideal place to bring the family, including the dog, to enjoy a day out by the water.

Margate Beach  boasts the longest mainland stretches of sand beach together with a trendy 2 km redeveloped timber boardwalk. With clean white sand and sheltered waters this area a favourite dipping spot for families with young children.

Queens Beach North – Scarborough – on Flinders Parade, Scarborough is a great alternative to Scarborough Beach.

Settlement Cove Lagoon – Redcliffe – this is the prime place to beat the heat in a shallow lagoon style pool that is patrolled by a lifesaver during summer. Kids love swimming in the cool water right beside the sea.

Suttons Beach – Redcliffe – is fully patrolled by lifeguards and boasts picturesque band rotundas, numerous barbeque facilities, gazebo-style dining, bikeways, toilet blocks, disabled access, plenty of space and a large playground for children.

Woody Point Beach – at the southern end of the Redcliffe Peninsula, Woody Point is the final resting place of the heavily armed ‘Gayundah’ warship wreck which first took to the water in 1885 before being decommissioned in 1958. But also is a lovely little seaside village with beaches and parks lining the foreshore.
