On my way to Brisbane from Cairns and I thought why not stop off at Mission Beach first. So here I am. I stop to camp at Cassowary Council Mission Beach Caravan Park, nice spot right on the beach front. The park is not all that big but big enough for this time of the year. It has a camp... More

I just love Mission Beach. I found it to be just so laid back and relaxed. All the shops and restaurants were manned by super friendly people. Can't wait to go back.

We were so surprised when we arrived at this beach and seen the state of it!! People pay so much money to skydive on a "beach" there is barely any golden sand it's more of a muddy mess! It has stinger nets in the sea that are no use as the waves are much higher and crash into the nets!... More

By mid-afternoon we had arrived on Mission Beach, the village was eerily quiet and it was still sweltering so a cold beer in a deserted beachside bar was my priority and then a search for accommodation. The best time to be on the lovely Mission Beach is dusk and that was where we went, strolling along the tide line until... More

We were amazed when we visited Mission Beach on the recommendation of friends. Amazed how few people were there, amazed at the beautiful hite sands, amazed that it is miles and miles long, amazed at seeing parachuters landing with precision on the beach. The village also amazed me as it is small and not been commercially exploited so may not... More

Fabulous place if you want a laid back experience. We rented a house right on Mission beach and with 100 metres of the netted swimming area. The beach is long clean and beautiful. There are a number of restaurants and cafe's within walking distance, but dont expect 5 star service or meals. Food is fresh and good, but more of... More

We went away for a romantic weekend away. We have been to mission before for different events but never just the two of us. The weather was terrible, rained almost the whole 3 days but mission has a charm that gets you even in the rain. The forest is beautiful and the beach looks calm in the rain. Will definitely...

Best beach for a long leisurely walk. Best time for walking is early morning or late evening before the sun gets too hot. We rarely missed a walk as this is the best time of day on the beach. During the day it is very hot and can be uncomfortable. If you are going to swim, wear a stinger suit... More

We were staying right on the beach and thought it really clean. We had a lovely long walk and also had a brief swim but didn't really enjoy it as we felt it is more for walking than swimming

Beautiful surroundings, laid back atmosphere, few shops and several eateries. Just don't come expecting lively nightlife
