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

Nice beach. Very relaxed with poor service and lack of facilities as a result. We had to ask a couple of times if various things were actually still trading, some places looked abandoned. We did see a Cassowary in the wild which was probably the highlight of our time in the area.

Mission Beach, aside from the obvious number of new accommodations etc, and nods to tourist needs, such as the wee Shopping area, remains remarkably un touristy to the outside view. It has retained its aura of being a beautiful untouched pristine beach, that happens to have a small community beside it. So relaxing. It is a good jumping off base... More

MIssion Beach is a beautiful natural area but is under developed and the little North Mission township is run down and under utilised.Castaways resort is the main draw card to the area and is an absolute rip off.
