11 Brisbane Beaches

Here's 11 beaches in and around Brisbane, some just tiny secret crescents of sand that only the locals know and others that are real beaches with sea and sand - alternative to the Gold and Sunshine Coasts:

At the base of the Shorncliffe cliffs is this enchanting little bay with grassy stretches shaded by cotton trees, rock pools, modern white picnic shelters, BBQs and a playground
Coochie Mudlo Island is one of Moreton Bay's most secluded and compact sand-fringed islands, relatively untouched by time or tourists
Pandanus is a little white sandy beach just off the jetty and near the water park and tidal pool
A little strip of patrolled sand, Suttons Beach is one of the best swimming beaches on the peninsula
Of the string of little bay beaches that line the Redcliffe Peninsula, Scarborough on the far northern tip would have to be the prettiest.
At low tide you can walk the sandbar from Wellington Point beach to King Island
This park is a wonderfully planned green space with something for every member of the family
Colmslie Reserve is an eden-like grove and parkland, complete with sandy beach, that appears like a mirage down a long tree-lined drive in the midst of an industrial area of Murarrie.
At low tide, around the base of Captain Burke Park, a wide sandy beach appears beyond the mangroves, that you can take a stroll on
Only a short hike from Redcliffe proper, Margate Beach is a charming English style ribbon of beach with calm surf ideal for paddling.
The perfect antidote to the corporate bustle of the CBD across the river, Streets Beach has something of the surreal about it.
