This beach is beautiful and it does have a swim net for the stinger season so you don’t have to worry about getting stung!

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

If you are travelling north from Cairns, I recommend a stop at Ellis Beach. This is a beautiful unspoilt tropical beach. Sandy beach good for swimming and walking. Nearby rocky outcrops to explore. You can easily relax here and take in the view. Another nearby...More

A great little beach with calm waters for this part of the coast. Can get stingers in season and there are crocodile warning signs for certain times of year but generally safe and busy. The local surf club,across the highway,provide life guards and weather/water advice

Great spot. You'll see some natural wildlife - like Cassowaries - strolling along this small private beach. It is a must see for anyone with a rental car and a free afternoon. There is a small campground at one end- should you decide to stay...More

Ellis beach would have to be perhaps the best beach north of cairns. Just a couple kms past Palm Cove, it has life guards on duty, stinger nets in place and beach reports adving of all conditions...including marine stingers. Great safe family beach.
