Just 10 minutes drive north of Cairns, Holloways Beach is one of the first of the city’s famous northern beaches. Its relaxed, tropical vibe makes it the perfect beach to relax with a good book and catch up on some “me” time.
The clean gentle waters of the Coral Sea are protected with stinger nets during the summer months and patrolled year-round.
Accommodation ranges from affordable self-contained units to a five-star resort right on the beach. Cute cafes, restaurants and beach-side dining offer the best of the area’s fresh local produce. For fine dining North Queensland-style, grab some local prawns and take advantage of the barbecue and picnic facilities located on the grassy esplanade.
Markets are also held by the beach on a regular basis.
