We were advised that the Ellis Beach Caravan Park was something really special - it wasn't. We had a powered site for 5 nights and had pre -booked several months before. We were lucky in the sense that we weren't cheek-by-jowl with the vast majority of the other caravans and motorhomes - talk about tight! Just trying to drive past... More

Stayed at this park on 22nd and 23rd of Aug 14. After letting us choose our camp spot to accommodate a med 4x4 and an RV tent coming of the side of my 4x4. We chose a spot which was perfect, but later on in the evening a staff member said we might have to move to allow another van... More

We love Ellis Beach and have been there several times because it is so beautiful and peaceful. It really is a bit of paradise. The bungalows are adequate and right on the beach. But you have to have a car which really adds onto the cost of the holiday. Also if the weather is ordinary you either have to sit... More

We loved staying in a bungalow right on the beach. It was lovely going to sleep and waking to the sound of waves crashing on the shores. We were in bungalow 4 and You do hear the noise of trucks racing along captain cook highway but it is easy to ignore. The bungalow we were in was retro but clean... More

We stayed 3 nights at the caravanpark at an unpowered spot right at the beach with many coconuttrees. Beautifull! There is some noise of the road, but at night you only hear the sound of the waves. And when you wake up you see the beautifull sunrise ... We loved it! Park has good and clean amenities, campkitchen with bbq,... More

We stayed here for a week in June and had high expectations. My husband had stayed here with his family 30 years ago and remembers it as a picture perfect place to stay right on the beach. It still is a picture perfect place to stay, as we were positioned only metres from the beach in our caravan and our... More

Our third Christmas stay here, Ellis Beach has now become a favourite family destination each year. Stayed in a two bedroom, fully self-contained cabin with the ocean only metres away. The cabins are not luxury by any means but are clean, comfortable and have everything you need. Previous reviews mention road noise but we didn't have this problem as we... More

We stayed here 2x3 nights in june 2013 and absolutely loved it! The campground at the very end is litterally ON the beach. Sites down there ate unpowered, but it doesn't matter! Amenities are nothing special, but it all work fine! Nice pool! You stay here for the location, and it is worth every cent! Someone wrote about noise from... More

A group of 4 friends stayed overnight after picking a friend up from the airport. It's a lovely place to bring friends from the city or overseas (even a nice break for us locals). Bungalows a brilliant place to stay. Clean, bright, comfortable with kitchen, large fridge and tv. Polite staff. Amazing views.
