Great beaches, food and people. The fish and chip at the Fish Bar were great. The Licuala Lodge is the best B & B ever.

Coming in from Cairns most people go north to Port Douglas but I'd definitely encourage you to go south to Mission Beach. The place is beautiful - the beaches are clean and the locals are very friendly.

This is the archetypal tropical beach fringed with palm trees. Beautiful. I just wish you could swim anywhere along it but you must be careful & keep to the stinger nets in Queensland.

You feel like you are in a wild place. You need a car if you want to buy more to essential. Be careful with the stingers.

This beach makes it feel like you are in Hawaii, it is beautiful and tropical, with plenty of coconut trees. We cracked open a fallen coconut which was delicious and fresh. The beach does for ages, and has a stinger net for swimming during stinger season. Honestly one of he most beautiful beaches I have ever seen!

We stayed in fantastic B &B just off Mission Beach- Licuala Lodge- we could of seen a little bit more if we had of had a car. However enjoyed some quiet relaxing time and then most fantastic day sailing and snorkelling on the Barrier Reef with the Big Mama Sailing. Not the time to be swimming on the beach with... More

Mission beach is a quiet little place with a nice beach with palmtrees. Seems to be a good place for backpackers.

I love going to Mission Beach. The beach is so nice and clean with no mangroves to spoil it. A good stinger net with lifesavers is a great place for a swim in the sea. The village is OK. Lots of coffee shops and eatery/bars. Very laid back and relaxing.

Mission beach is living on its reputation and, it appears from what I saw, to be doing very little to enhance or improve the experience for visitors. The prices being asked are way over the top for what you are getting. You can only live on the "poor us we were hit by two cyclones" story to hide the fact... More
