Margate, in Redcliffe City, is a coastal strip which features one of Moreton Bay area’s longest mainland stretches of sand beach.
It also boasts a long, flat boardwalk promenade, making it ideal for those who like to walk, cycle, rollerblade or even scooter, and producing a lively and active atmosphere just metres from the waters of Moreton Bay.
Seating and shelters, with barbecues and other picnic amenities are located at regular intervals along the esplanade for visitors to enjoy. Also a popular swimming spot its expanse of clean white sand and sheltered waters makes it a favorite dipping spot for families with young children.
When the wind is up, Scotts Point at the southern end of Margate is perfect for windsurfing. This is one of the very few locations close to Brisbane which is not particularly affected by tide.
The quaint swimming pavilion at Scotts Point is an historical reference to a bygone era as are the many Norfolk Pine trees lining the esplanade that were planted by the first settlers in the area, more than 150 years ago.
With eateries and seaside stores conveniently located along the esplanade or nearby Oxley Avenue, Margate is well worth a visit.
