I finally ventured down to Mission Beach during my last trip to Cairns and oh-my-god, I can’t believe it took me this long to see this little slice of paradise! We practically had the entire stretch of beach to ourselves (whaaa?!) and I was surprised just how quiet, peaceful and surreal this little beach town was. With coconut trees and beach that stretch for kilometres nestled right beside lush forest, Mission Beach made me feel like I was on a deserted island!
Mission Beach is located right between Cairns and Townsville, and approx. 1 hour and 50 mins drive from Cairns. Definitely make the drive here if you are looking for a quiet/romantic getaway with plenty of piece and quiet. Or simply if you love coconut trees and want to feel paradise at your fingertips, Mission Beach is your place :)!
