This is our go to area for that short break recharge. Rain or shine a walk along the beach is a must. Being so close to Dunk Island the views are lovely and on a cloud free blue sky day the water and vista is just spectacular. The locals are laid back and there are a variety of great food... More

It was raining therefore the beach was a swell but still picturesque. I was told that this is crocodile territory so I probably well I wouldn't go into any water's unknown you just never know. Overall a nice view.

Beautiful beaches, fringed with soaring palm trees, rich smells of lush undergrowth, tropical flowers, hand sized vibrant blue butterflies, an ideal quiet getaway.

Stayed at Cowley Beach recently. Nice quiet (leased) Council Park. Lovely views to Islands and nice grassy sites. Amenities - one block opened in the middle of the park, badly needs replacing the toilet / shower stalls are not even 5 ft tall everybody having a shower has full view if tall enough of everyone else ?? Never experienced anything... More

Lovely beach to walk along as the sand is the perfect texture to walk along. Crabs give the beach an interesting feel and look with their industrious sand balling. Netted area in stinger season to swim at and beautiful clear water

We spent five days admission Beach mostly walking on the various tracks encompassing different habitats. One day we spent snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef. The beaches are amazing and world class fringed by coconut palms. There are a couple of stinger nets for safe bathing during the wet season.

Perfect to be in contact with nature.Completely wild, it's a piece of paradise. A towel & book is all you need it. (maybe some snacks too).
