A beautiful stretch of sand fringed with palms, wonderful for an early morning or evening stroll, a chat with the local dog walkers. Part of the beach protected with stinger nets. Quiet peaceful, a little piece of paradise.

A lovely place to relax and use as a base for a few days or more, Quiet little township although spread across 3 small areas. Plenty of places to grab a bite from,nice location to head out to the islands from if you are into walking. Have a go at spotting Cassowaries! Take a beach stroll,have a fish,enjoy the peace.

We have been regularly visiting Mission beach for more than 15 years now and always look forward to our next visit. Seeing Dunk, bedarra, wheeler, hinchinbrook and other islands make the view from the beach interesting. Full moon nights on the water are breathtaking. The general mood is relaxed. Locals are friendly and helpful. It is a bit out of... More

Has a very cool, friendly and relaxed vibe. 14Kms of beach to explore. Lots of walk trails along the coast and slightly inland in the rainforest. Amazing wildlife, particularly bird life, wallabies and cassowaries. Friendly people.

We stopped for a lunch break en route from Townsville to Cairns, and enjoyed a lovely break on an absolutely deserted beach. It is absolutely natural and unspoilt, with coconut-laden palm trees and great views along the water's edge. Crabs scuttle across the sand, disappearing down there holes, and it's fascinating to see the carpet of spitballed sand that they... More

This is a great white sandy beach. It does get a bit 'messy' after a bit of a 'blow', lots of debris out of the ocean, but it's nothing that detracts from the area. Great views to Dunk Island, with a Taxi service that can take you there for a Day Trip.

What a relaxing, peaceful, picturesque beach. So many little villages to explore along it. Situated on the Great Barrier Reef there are so many water sports to do. Fishing, diving, snorkelling, jet boating, kayaking and more... or skydive from above... and all of these are possible to access from the little villages along the beach.... it's a must to stay...

The beach seemed very quiet when we visited. There are many restaurants and cafes around, some quite delightful. We ventured a little further past the main beach and came to a little clearing with a little platform of rocks extending into the the sea. It formed little rock pools that looked very pretty, but we were a little unsure of... More
