Escape the summer heat at one of Cairns' best known landmarks, the Esplanade Lagoon. Set on the Cairns foreshore overlooking Trinity Inlet, the 4800 sq metre saltwater swimming lagoon offers locals and tourists a year round safe swimming location...more
If you are in Cairns you'll see it ;) It's next to the ocean! Great opportunity to cool off during the hot summer days or get a tan. I really enjoyed it as a solo traveler. There are lockers you can rent for few $...More
The esplanade and the lagoon are a great spot for families and people to relax and enjoy the great weather in Cairns. The lagoon is well maintained and supervised by life guards. It’s cleaned regularly but does smell a bit of chlorine. The walking path...More
If you are in Cairns a visit to the lagoon is a must. It’s safe, clean, manned by life guards and large enough to have room for everyone, young and old alike. Change rooms and toilets available nearby and plenty of grassed area to lounge...More

Obviously, you cannot just swim in the sea around and the lagoon might seem like a good option,but I would not recommend it. Just 40 mins on the bus you have absolute pieces of paradice in Trinity beach and Palm Cove beach.
The Cairns Lagoon pool is the best pool on the planet! The lagoon area is muddy, dangerous with crocs swimming around and their is not a sandy beach area, as well! The pool itself has a sandy beach style area on one side and the...More

There're 2: Fitzroy: hiking, 'muck diving / snorkelling', occasional remarkable animals like snake eels & dugong ... ockies & shovel nose rays under the pier (the walkway to the dock; don't dive / snorkel under the dock; it scares the boat skippers!), beautiful Nudey beach (not a nudist beach) full of nudibranchs, molluscs and sponges just off shore....... & Green Island; quick & easy round the island walk, easy beginners' beach, plenty of tropical vegetation, plenty of parrotfish, some epaulette sharks (cute, unintimidating, about 25cm long, look like spotty sausages), some butterfly fish species.
