The drive from Clump Point Jetty to Mission would have to be one of the best in Australia - right up there with the drive from Cairns to Port Douglas, Wonderful wide beaches, good for families and a romantic getaway as well

A nice beach but the tide was way out when we were there. The water isn't as clear as someplaces I've been to, but the beach itself with its sand and palms was cute. It seems like a very secluded quiet area despite tourists stopping by.

It’s a windy road driving to Mission Beach (via El Arish) and you need to beware of Cassowaries on the road. Along the way we saw pandanus, tall tropical trees and bushland including rainforest treks. Mission Beach itself is rather small and quiet. Visit South Mission Beach while you’re in the area – it’s very picturesque and the houses are... More

Mission Beach itself is a lovely spot to visit, beaches are nice to walk along with islands to break up the horizon and plenty of food and bars. It does get busy in the winter months when the southerners visit for the warmth, but that just creates a lively atmosphere. We come up for the weekend as locals and really... More

Well maintained with good views out to the islands. Caravan parks and cabins need to be booked way ahead as we couldnt get in and stayed at the... More

A very quiet, very long beach. With a beautiful row of palm trees lining the beach and little mud crabs walking about creating a unique eye-sight. With wo islands in the background it is the nicest beach I have been to along the East Coast (and I feel we have stopped at every single one!) It is definitely enough to... More

Mission Beach is quiet and tranquil, although when it rains there is absolutely nothing to do, especially if you don't have a car.
