Beautiful, remote and pretty

Such a special spot. Gorgeous beach at the end of a lovely walk. If you're on Fitzroy Island, it's a must!

Hike from the wharf. Poor visibility the day we visited.
Apr 2021 • Family
Drove down to Cairns from Port Douglas to spend a day on Fitzroy Island. We planned to walk to Nudey Beach, snorkel, have a picnic and walk back. All the reviews we read said this was an easy/moderate walk on mostly level ground. Unfortunately this wasn’t the case. There are level parts of the walk but there was also a lot of uneven rock stairs so some of the group were not able to make it to the beach. It did take about 20 minutes but when you are carrying snorkelling gear, stinger suits, picnic lunch, etc it was definitely not an easy walk, much more of a hike.

The beach is a small, mostly coral beach with a small amount of shade. On the day we were there the water wasn’t very clear and we couldn’t see much.

Others in our group snorkelled off the main beach not far from the wharf and they also didn’t see much.

All in all it was a somewhat disappointing trip. But we did have a good laugh trying to get into and out of the stinger suits.

Coral Beach on Fitzroy Island
Mar 2021 • Couples
A very pretty Beach that is accessed via a 20 minute easy walk through rainforest. The beach is only small so can be crowded during busy periods. It is a coral beach so a bit rough on your bare feet. Very pretty and worth a look.

Just another beach
Dec 2020 • Friends
Only spent minutes here after walking a distance to see it, plenty of shady spots and not a very large beach, but popular.

So close to Cairns
Feb 2021
Trips to the outer reef from Cairns can take 90 mins. Fitzroy Island is the perfect day trip, only a one hour protected near shore crossing, snorkeling off the beach, friendly pub for a meal. It takes about 20 mins to walk through the bolder littoral rainforest to the beach, its a good path so worth the effort.

Not the best beach but not the worst
Feb 2021 • Couples
We fell for the hype with this one. Corals are very deep off the beach, visibility is poor and the beach is coral not sand. The beach near the jetty is actually better and you have a better chance of seeing turtles

A great day at a great beach
Oct 2020
Just one of the many great experiences we had on Fitzroy Island. WE spent the best part of a day there. The boys snorkelled and climbed rocks all day. While we parents chilled, snorkelled and played with the 2 year old, who also loved the day.

The water colour is amazing
Sep 2020
This is not a sandy beach, but made up of coral. But the colour along with the magnificent water colour makes it beautiful. With big boulders at one end it is very scenic and worth checking out when on Fitzroy Island.

1/2 day trip Fitzroy Island
Sep 2020
Started with a trip on the afitzroy Flyer where the staff were super cool and friendly. Joking and funny and serious about the covid res5rictions to keep us safe. Trip was as they said smooth and also a bit rough. Great beach at Nudey Beach so quiet. Weather had the water a bit stirred up but the gentle walk there and back was really nice. Good food at the Foxy Cafe. The best philly cheese and steak panini I have ever had.

The main beach at the jetty has shells as sand so definitely take some water shoes although not pointy or too painful to walk on. Hire equipment available. Make sure you go when wind is not so high. Great day out definitely. You can also stay on the island. Some walking tracks also which were great.
