Once again, sea, sand- and the usual. Nice place to hang out for a bit, far from everything, good for chilling in the quiet I suppose. Not too much to see in the sea if you're a keen diver or snorkeller though.

Miles of quiet clean sandy beach with palm trees on the fringes. Un-spoit for all to enjoy and a protected safe swimming area, wonderful1

If you get the chance take the sunset sailing cruise around Dunk Island. The hosts were fantastic and they pick you up on the beach right outside the Resort. The champagne supplied was terrific.

Lovely little sleepy town in a wonderful location with sea and rainforest meeting. Stunning beach overlooking Dunk and Bedarra Islands. An hour and forty minutes drive from Cairns through some stunning scenery. Lots of rental properties located directly on the beach. If the weather is fine it is a wonderful place to be... Still good at other times as well.

Not exactly a thriving, exciting area, but that was what we were looking for. Great place to relax and unwind. Beaches are beautiful for a picnic, but of course don't go in the water without a stinger suit. Disappointed several of the restaurants were closed for the holiday period - I thought being in the hospitality/tourism industry meant you were... More

This town is the best, but don't expect a Surfers Paradise sort of place. Probably 1 of the best beaches in the World, but a little like being in a time warp, just like a small beach town should be. Chillded Chilled

One of my favorite spots in Oz. Extremely beautiful. It can easily compete with Cape Tribulation in my opinion, when it comes to jungle/beach experiences. Plenty of nice food options as well.
