The cove is lined with paperbark trees that are centuries old, and the sandy coastline it occupies stretches uninterrupted along Far North Queensland. The town itself is charming, offering a number of relaxing spas and little restaurants.
This unassuming spot is also an important gateway to nearby areas of interest, such as the Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree Rainforest and Cairns. As a result, many world-class resorts and hotels have sprung up, offering luxury stays for couples and families wanting to enjoy a quick getaway. For you, that translates to rooftop terraces over the ocean, bubbling Jacuzzis on private balconies and hotel-filled hampers filled with tasty delights to carry down for picnics on the beach.
