Redcliffe Point forms the northern boundary of the straight 2km long Suttons-Margate beach (1570), which terminates in the south at Scotts Point. The Redcliffe Peninsula surf club is located at the northern tip of the beach, with a carpark 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 backing eroding beach and eroding bluffs of Scotts Point.
