Best of Cairns Beaches

Palm Cove Beach

Palm Cove is arguably the most pristine of all Cairns’ Northern Beaches, and it offers picnic tables and free barbeques along its entire length. At the northern end of the beach is a long jetty, described as the most expensive fishing platform in the world by local politicians.

Behind the fringe of palm trees lies Palm Cove Accommodation. From backpackers accommodation to 5-star resorts and fine-dining restaurants, Palm Cove has it all. This versatile beach can be used for the most relaxing holiday experience you can find, and can also serve as an exciting venue for water sports and other activities.

Trinity Beach

Trinity Beach is the place to be. This banana-shaped beach is sheltered between two large headlands, so all you can see from your beach towel as you soak up the rays is the blue water of the Pacific Ocean. Trinity Beach is very popular with everyone in Cairns and therefore has a huge selection of take-away shops, restaurants, small shopping centres, and accommodation types.

The beach is lined with picnic tables and barbeques that are free to use. The swaying palm trees and aroma of hot fish and chips make Trinity Beach a marvellous place for a family outing or an afternoon get-together with friends.

While Trinity Beach is a residential beach, the road along the beachfront is entirely dedicated to tourist resorts, restaurants and cafes.

Ellis Beach

Ellis Beach is located on the northern side of a rocky outcrop that separates it from the bustling Palm Cove. This beach has all the beauty and charm that Palm Cove offers, but it is totally undeveloped and far fewer people visit it. The local Cairns bus line does not drive to Ellis, which partially accounts for the low number of visitors to the beach.

Ellis Beach is long and thin, stretching for just over 1 kilometre. There is very little swell or surf here because of the rocky outcrop at the southern end and the large Double Island that blocks the sea. At the southern end of the beach the fishing is excellent, and at all other places the sunbathing is great.

Please be careful when swimming here because not many people are around and if you get into trouble you may be on your own to sort yourself out.

Four Mile Beach

This is the premier beach of Port Douglas. From the main Port Douglas district, you can walk to the beach in under 5 minutes and then continue to walk along the sandy beach for hours under the tropical sun. 4-Mile Beach begins at the northern rocky headland – great for kids to explore and play with the small crabs that make the beach their home. Then the 4 miles of beach unfolds in a gentle curve that continues as far as the eye can see, without a hint of development. In fact, the accommodation and houses are neatly hidden behind the swaying palms.

Note: This beach has a stinger net during the stinger season. When the stinger net is in place, please only swim inside its protective barriers. Swimming outside the nets exposes you to unnecessary dangers.

Holloways Beach

Holloways beach is narrow – only a couple of metres in width – but is a lovely spot to cool off, take the dog for a walk, sit and enjoy the fresh air, or cast out a fishing line. A very nice restaurant and café makes Holloways a pleasant beach in all circumstances.

To access Holloways Beach, follow the Captain Cook Highway north until you reach the roundabout with the sign HOLLOWAYS BEACH. Turn right here and follow the road all the way to the end. This road is well marked with signs, which make it easy to follow.

Note: This beach has a stinger net during the stinger season. When the stinger net is in place, please only swim inside its protective barriers. Swimming outside the nets exposes you to unnecessary dangers.
