    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 were on the ocean side where the sound of the waves was all we heard. Stinger net is a short walk away but we preferred the shady pool. Ellis Beach Oceanfront Bungalows also offers beachfront camp sites and powered caravan sites but these are at the opposite end to the bungalows. A great spot for families, its a short drive to Palm Cove and 25 minutes to Cairns city. Will definitely be back for a fourth stay. Highly recommended for a 4 to 7 day stay.

    Room Tip: Go for oceanfront instead of closest to the road. B02 is almost at the end so there's no passing foot traffic.

    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 the highway. I cannot recall any other noise than the rattling palm trees and the waves rolling onto the beach front!

    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.

    My wife and I are from NZ and we travel in Australia for at least two months every year never staying anywhere for longer than a few days. We have stayed at Ellis Beach on at least four occasions in the ocean front bungalows and every time our stay has been exactly what we both expect of this fabulously positioned and maintained site. The manager, Paul, who has been there for many years now has precisely the right idea on how to run a business of this nature in order to keep it as popular as it is without ruining it and the "strict" rules which other reviewers have pointed out regarding costs etc. can only make the place better and more efficiently run.

    Room Tip: For couples................. Ocean front bungalows nos 20-25 are a must

    One of the best camp sitesduring our trip with motorvan. You can park almost on the beach, and dine under the pine trees, next to sea. I understand that place is full usually so book in advance. Unpowered sites are closer to the sand
