The all inclusive hotels have their own chairs on their beaches but the Princess Alexandra National Park trails and beaches are open to the public. We were there in "high season" and we never encountered large crowds of people.

Difficult access and located far from everything. Fairly rough road driving in, but regardless you will need to park the car and hike in.

Nice facilities with plenty of beach and reefs to be explored. Lots of different fish species to view or just a lovely place to take in the views of the amazing water. Be respectful of the reefs and don't step on them or litter!

A wonderful nature area. A very narrow road through bush, all the way out to a prisitne beach. Felt like a deserted Island, no houses anywhere in sight, and we were there all alone. We went for a walk along the beach. Just wonderful!
