Don’t let anyone know we told you… but there are a few awesome spots we are going to reveal to you!
An ICONIC picture can be taken just a 25 minute beach walk away, these bendy palm trees make the ultimate postcard or insta snap moment! When walking there, you will see a resort (Castaways) on your right hand side, from here just keep walking on the beach for a few minutes and you should see them. You can stop by and have a coffee or lunch on the absolute beachfront porch of Castaways (Buko Restaurant) too which is open to the public!
These famous beautiful blue pools will have you hypnotised! Just an hour south of us you’ll find these naturally spring-fed spa pools icy blue coloured pools hidden away in National Park. Be sure to check out the website before you go as they do tend to dry out during certain times of the year: https://www.tropicalnorthqueensland.org.au/articles/cardwell-spa-pool/
Beach and pool just a little warm for your taste? Try the cooling, soothing waters of Alligator’s Nest. Hidden away only 30 minutes from us is the perfect little picnic and bathing spot, and no, no alligators or crocodiles in sight! You may want to bring some mozzie spray at certain times of the year but we promise it’s worth it!
Garner Beach consists of two pocket beaches tucked in between two 60 m high bushy headlands. A road off the Bingil Bay Road runs right to the back of both beaches, servicing a few houses and a shady beachfront reserve that is used for camping; otherwise there are no facilities. The northern beach (777) is 300 m long and bordered by low, rocky outcrops. It faces north-east and is protected by sand flats, then coral reef. It is bare sand at low tide, with only low waves at high tide lapping against the moderately steep high tide beach. The main southern beach (778) is 1.2 km long and swings around to face north-east, then north. It is even more protected, with 300 m long low tide sand flats off the beach, then the reef, with rocky outcrops at each end. The more protected southern headland is fringed by mangroves.
