Castaways Mission Beach is located right on the ocean front. The hotel is an open design that takes advantage of the ocean see breezes for cooling. The restaurant is also of a fine-dining nature but also acceptable for a family without having to get too dressed up! I stayed

I've driven back to Mission Beach after the night tour at Paronella Park and it has been no problem at all. Just take it slow on the back road bends and you won't have a worry - it's about a 30-40 minute drive to Castaways from Paronella.

Apologies, much too in response to this question, however the same answer still applies - our earliest guaranteed check in time is 2pm. However if on the day a room should be ready earlier, guests are more than welcome to check in prior to 2pm at no additional cost. If you are able to advise our reservations team of your anticipated early arrival, then we will do our best to be able to accommodate this.

Hi Edu197120, There are 3 ways of getting to the Resort. We offer a transfer option that will pick you up at the airport and bring to the resort. The second option is to Hire a car from Sugarland rentals that allows you to drop off the car in Mission Beach and there is also a Greyhound bus from Cairns to Mission Beach, and we can transfer you from from the bus stop. We have 3 operators who go each day to the Reef with organised trips, or we can arrange a private charter for you. We will be soon ( July) be opening a dive centre here at the resort but at this time we do not have a dedicated dive centre. However we can arrange a private charter dive with gear for you. Hope this is of assistance, please contact the resort for further details
