Hi guys. Does anyone know if it is possible to launch sup from Beaumaris yacht squadron or other options to access that part of the bay

I assume you mean the motor yacht squadron. I doubt it. There's no parking and a big unfriendly gate.

Why would you want to launch a SUP there? You could go in at Ricketts or Mentone and just paddle around the corner.

As I remember it there's an easy jump off - table rock

It's not particularly sup friendly down there at the motor yacht squadron - rocky, slippery and not much parking. If you want to paddle under the cliffs at Beaumaris Bay you're better off parking near the Beauie lifesaving club at Dalgetty Beach and paddling around the corner (as has been pointed out), or parking at the Beach Rd carpark opposite Mundy street and walking down the ramp (free parking until 8am, then you'll need a Kingston permit sticker or pay at the machine). You can put in easily at Beauie yacht club (but be mindful of the reef at low tide). Half Moon Bay is good too.

Parking at any of these spots can be pretty dire on a nice day, early mornings are best.

Yes, parking is terrible, and expensive.
And the parking inspectors are there all the time, and fines are huge.
And the reef will get you.....

Isn't there a scouts club boat ramp along there that you can access by a track from the road?

Thanks for advice and indeed there's a scouts club. May be an easy stroll to fishing depth of the sup

Depending on the tide, I'm sure you will be able to launch there.
