The town was very nice, small with quaint shops and restaurants. Small eatery had great fish and chips. Beach had a netted off area for swimming that was great for kids. Water was very warm as we were there in November. Loved this area.

Lovely beaches and most things you would want in a place. There are 4 beaches/ areas and you pick what suits you. Restaurants and campsites to choose plus lots of activities - lots of young people enjoying themselves. Would recommend

Beautiful place to visit, close to reef, plenty of facilities without the crowds. I have been visiting for more than 20 years as a part of north Australian travels primarily for fishing. A great part of North Queensland for fisho's.

Mission Beach is one of the magical places that seems to avoid scruitiny because it's off the beaten track and its location between Cairns and Townsville. And the surrounding areas give little hint to what lies over the hills - almost expecting it to be a mangrove wasteland. Instead, you're met by dense rainforest that runs down to the shore,... More

Clean, magnificent and undercrowded even on weekends and holidays. Warm water, but when swimming you should use the anti-stinger net if it has been put out. On the first and third Sunday mornings of the month there is a good and well-patronized open market just a few metres behind the beach.

Love Mission Beach, very laid back place, loads of backpackers here. For older visitors theres the beach and a few walks, plenty of resort pools for relaxing and reading. For the younger, theres a couple of bars, live music on weekends, skydiving and SUP's.

With beautiful Dunk island in the background this is a must holiday destination, catering for couples families and backpackers. One of the nicest beaches in North Queensland.
