Marcus Beach (1539C) runs for 5 km between Sunrise and Peregian and is backed by a vegetated foreshore reserve, with also some parking and beach access points and sections of beachfront residential areas. It is not patrolled and maintains the same rip-dominated inner and outer bar system.

Swimming

Swimming anywhere along the beach is relatively hazardous owing to the persistent strong rips, the deep longshore trough and larger rips further offshore. You should only swim at the four patrolled beaches. Stay between the flags and well clear of the rips.

Surfing

There are numerous beach breaks the length of the beach, with best conditions at high tide on a moderate swell.

Fishing

The rips produce good holes the length of the beach, with the deep longshore trough also accessible with a long cast.

General

A long beach offering plenty of surf and a range of settlements and facilities.
