When staying in Cairns we often drive to Port Douglas as the coastal scenery is so tropical and pristine. Ellis beach is a favourite place to stop complete with holiday rentals beside the beach, a life saver facility and a decent hotel too. A pleasant...More

Beautiful beach and still nice even though its busier than some (but still not busy). Plenty of parking and a great place for a walk or to spend some beach time.

Loved this beach and stoked to find it was also patrolled Hardly anyone there which was also a big appeal as we weren't fighting for space on that gorgeous golden sand

We stayed for a family holiday in Trinity Beach (otherwise known as Ellis Beach) and swam here every day. There were lifeguards on duty every day and nets out for sharks. The beach is clean and the BBQ area at the north end is cleaned...More
