We talked the Esplanade from our hotel to town several times. The ocean is not pretty though, it's a big Mud Flat. There is a great pool for the whole family that has an invisible kind of drop so you view the ocean while swimming. There are free BBQ grills many places and its nice if you want you morning or evening Jog or Walk for exercise.

Even in 39C temperatures and the threat of torrential rain, the promenade along the waterfront was beautiful. Too hot for us, but there are work-out stations all along the way for those craving more "activity" and several great eateries at the end.

While staying in Cairns for work, I braced myself for the heat and got up every morning for walks along the board walk. Beautiful and clean, easy access to the public pool and shops. Recommend a lovely walk along this boardwalk

The esplanade boardwalk makes for a nice easy walk along the front with a pushchair, toddler and small child. The novelty of the boardwalk meant they walked the whole way, even on the hotter days! Great addition to the Cairns seafront. Great spot for pelican spotting too!!
