Yet another beautiful beach on the North Queensland coast. Plenty of parking and a lovely spot for a quiet walk or to spend the day.

We stopped here (in adjoining car park) for a picnic lunch. There is some covered timber seating but we opted to sit on the beach and enjoy the scenery. Waters edge about 50m from tree line. Distant views both ways and great to walk on...More

Staying across the road at the bungalows meant we enjoyed the rhythmic waves throughout the night. An unwinding for tired minds. The beach is a good length for a sunset stroll.

A tranquil beach on the edge of the rainforest, peacefull, so perfectly clean. There are few beaches of this natural beauty left in the world.

We stopped at a kiosk next to the beach and after having a snack there was time to walk around this beautiful area. Our kiosk owner gave us a friendly warning to be careful where we walked as this is the territory of salt water...More
