After a day of surfing heavy reef breaks, Redgate offers a nice easy beach break set among beautiful coastal dunes and ancient granite boulders. It can be great for beginners in the right conditions, but beware of rips. It likes a swell from the south to south-west with easterly wind, but its location offers some protection, so it's worth a look when all else fails.

For the bird enthusiasts!
Australasian Gannet, Eastern Reef Egret, Osprey and Hooded Plover are all worth looking for. In the vegetation near the beach, you can also look for Rock Parrot, Little Eagle, Australian Hobby and Nankeen Kestrel.

Best beach! Every Margaret River trip either begins or ends at this beach. Beautiful rocks, the water has an amazing range of colours from crystal clear to stormy grey blue. Not bad surf and many rocks and nature trails to explore. Go there! Julie Ellen
Good surf, nice beaches! Marc Eberlein
Pristine beach but known for rips. Not many people here today so almost had the place to ourselves. Little walk down from the carpark (long drop loo). Aly M.
Walking along this beach doing Cape to Cape with a group of friends was great, we stopped, had a well needed swim and I came back later in the year to shred those waves. I wouldn't recommend going out far if you are swimming, especially at certain times of year unless you are game enough but the surf was great for an intermediate surfer like me. Spotted some proper bucket hat eshays on boards doing their eshay buisness but still 💯 Callum Johnston
Fantastic spot. We visited on an extremely windy day and the waves were wild. Went for a walk on the rocks with our daughter who had never seen the sea before and she was amazed (or as amazed as a 7 month old can be) by it. Also a great spot for photos. Nicholas Davies
