We were staying right on the beach and thought it really clean. We had a lovely long walk and also had a brief swim but didn't really enjoy it as we felt it is more for walking than swimming

Beautiful surroundings, laid back atmosphere, few shops and several eateries. Just don't come expecting lively nightlife

Mission Beach is by far one of the best places I have been to in Australia. It has a village feel and the views are great.

We stayed in a beach side house about 100 yards through the rain forest. A hop, skip and a jump took out onto this huge expanse of glorious white sand. Any time we went for a stroll or a paddle there was never anymore than half a dozen people on the whole beach. Paradise!
