Beautiful!

Tropical paradise! Could definitely have stayed here longer. The town is like an island paradise but on the mainland obviously! Wide variety of accommodation

The natural beauty of this area is second to none. The beach is long and unspoiled with beautiful sand and space for all - a swimming area safe from stingers with Lifeguards adds to the overall fun, sun and sand activities. The negative side to this destination is the confrontational attitude of staff at the majority of the holiday/tourist businesses.... More

Beautiful location, beach is pristine, I walked the full length of the Beach and passed about 10 people in 40 minutes, peaceful and relaxing, hard to beat!

Visited here in mid January and thought the beach was stunning, clean and beautiful. Hardly a person seen as well.

We drove to mission beach from Townsville on a day trip. There was a Sunday market which was packing up when we arrived due to the extreme humidity I don't blame them leaving by 12 pm. The beach was empty as far as the eye could sea due to stinger season and the crocs. There is a sealed off area... More

We spent a few hours on a rainy day on the beach, and were almost alone. Still, the life guards were on duty, the stinger net was in place, and everything felt very safe. We spent most of the time with a big bucket, shovel, and some sand sculpting tools, and very quickly built a 60 cm castle. The sand... More

Typical Queensland beach nightmare. Wonderful view on a beach harboring the most deadly fauna of the area: bullsharks, crocodiles, and deadly stingers. Land activity only is allowed. Walk and look for cassowary, DO NOT enter the water. Better consider Mediterranea if you like water sport.

Mission Beach is probably one of the most beautiful beaches I have seen. The biggest drawback are the stingers, some of them with deadly venom. The sea is warm and so inviting but the thought to meet one of these critters too scary to go swimming. There are two stingers nets, where it is safe to go into the water... More

Idyllic isn't an inappropriate adjective for this superb beach. Miles long and virtually people-free. One of the finest beaches we've ever visited.

White sand, palm trees, beautiful water. It's a shame you can't really swim in the water though, because of all the things that might kill you! Nice to look at though.
