Trinity Beach is a hidden gem. Only 10 minutes away from the airport and so convenient to access Palm Cove, Port Douglas, Cairns, Kuranda. Trinity beach has a relaxed, local feel which is important to my husband as we don’t like to stay in “tourist traps”. Initially I was sceptical about staying at Trinity Beach since I had never heard of it previously but friends insisted that we would enjoy it more than Cairns and more central.
From our room, the views of the ocean and islands were incredible. The apartment is brand new with good appliances (blender, dishwasher, wok, rice cooker, ice machine). This was opportune as my husband and I loved coming back to the apartment after exploring the region making dinner and sitting on the balcony drinking mango daiquiri and mojitos (bought our groceries from Smithfield and fresh fruit from roadside caravans). I really enjoyed our stay and the rooms were so comfortable and feel like our home as we stayed there for several weeks. The managers were also very accommodating.
The two highlights for me were swimming at Josephine Falls and diving at the outer area of the Great Barrier Reef Highly. I highly recommend “HABA Dive Cruises” as our instructor enhanced our experience. They were exceptional at pointing out heaps of marine animals which I didn’t initially see such as a turtle, cuttlefish, eel, stingray plus so many more. Our instructor was so good at communicating underwater as well.
Where to eat:
There is a pub and pizzeria down stairs from the Vue both are very informal and you can sit back and enjoy the beach views.
Reef House at Palm Cove is great. Beautiful setting. Great Food is the French Patisserie and Bistro in from of Drift at Palm Cove. Run by my man from France, they should plan all brekkies and coffees here...very informal. Great crepes and pancakes and eggs benedict with either spinach or bacon.
