My wife suggested Mission Beach as a holiday destination in June, and after a quick check on Google maps, I reluctantly agreed...... (i had never heard of Mission Beach).
I wont be going anywhere else from now on.
Mission Beach is close enough to Cairns to make it a viable destination, and just far enough away to keep it wonderfully quiet - it felt like a beach town you went to as a kid!
Castaways sits right on the beach - you have a short walk over the lawn from the bar and you are on the sand. Our room was comfortable. The bar was great. The staff were friendly (I even found myself flying a model plane out the front with the resort manager Will one day!)
Food............ fantastic - Pork fillet for 2 is a must and they have to keep it on the menu.
Overall, I am a cynic who tends to get pissed off over small things when I stay with a hotel and I was struggling to complain about this one. 5 stars from me
