Children’s paradise in nature’s playground

Many childhood memories invoke building sandcastles and running around in the sun. As well as the fun of the beach, Sutton's Beach Playground is a fenced area where children can play safely and use their imagination to conjure adventures of pirates in this fort style playground. There are shade sails over most of the playground, which provide shade during most of the day.


There is a bike path running along the coastline of the peninsula, which is a fantastic way to take in the glorious beauty of the variety of aspects of this piece of paradise. This shared path is also suitable for wheelchairs. Those with younger babies can enjoy a lovely stroll with prams and take in the sea breeze.

Accessible Beach Mats

Accessible beach mats are installed near the Suttons Beach Rotunda, which provide an accessible and stable pathway over the sand.

Please note that while the beach mats are available 24/7 and are maintained on a regular basis, they may have sand on top of them due to strong winds or weather events. The mats may also be removed because of adverse coastal conditions.
