Although the Cairns Beaches are often compared to Noosa Australia We believe they are better as they offer a diversity, and serenity while still having "A buzz" about them.

Walking On Cairns Northern Beaches

You can stroll along these endless beaches for hours and only come across a few other dedicated fitness fanatics, local's exercising their dogs or happy tourists such as yourself every half hour or so. Such bliss!

Swimming at Cairns Northern Beaches

Cairns beaches are very safe and do not have huge surf or rough waves like the beaches south of the Great Barrier Reef as the foreshore is fully protected by the giant coral reef structures that sit further out to sea on the Great Barrier Reef extending right out to the edge of Australia's Continental shelf.
