We had a great stay at Kewarra Beach.

We stayed for 3 nights at the start of our honeymoon. Since we were straight off the plane they let us check in early, which was nice as we needed some sleep.

Staff were always polite and efficient.

Rooms are nicely decorated with lots of

Lovely beach-side setting. An amazing location right by the ocean. The chalet was comfortable. Friendly and helpful staff. Unfortunately there is no shop anywhere nearby, but there is a local bus to Cairns from the next street.

We’ve stayed in the Cairns region for years now making regular visits up from Melbourne to visit family. This was the most relaxing retreat and place to stay so far!! The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and we loved the secluded location of both the actual resort and ac

Amazing resort and staff, we stayed in Beach Bungalow 4 right on the beach! Would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Cairns! We saw wild animals on the resort and it has a nice safe area to swim in the ocean!

is the beach safe to swim in or are there crocodiles here? thank you,
Hi Troy, great question. Crocodiles live pretty much anywhere in the top end of Australia and this region is no exception. The local area is monitored very well by the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection. Any animal that is sighted is relocated. It is certainly never advisable to swim around or in the local estuaries, river mouths and especially at night. Otherwise the oceans are warm and inviting year round and Kewarra Beach has it's own stinger enclosure for the periods when required. We look forward to having the opportunity to welcome you to our sunny shores.

are other bars and restaurants walking distance? will the various tour operators pick you up here? is there a place nearby to buy liquor, beer and snacks?
There are no bars or restaurants nearby. No problem with tour operators picking you up from the resort. Small shops are about 20-30 min walk away. There is also large shopping centre about 45-50 min walk away.

Do you have tours that leave from your resort to go up to Cape Tribulation and the Daintree? We are looking for accommodation for our overseas relatives who will be visiting for their first time and won't be driving and are on their honeymoon. Are there free shuttle services from Kewarra beach into to Cairns centre?
No I don't think there are free shuttle services but we used the bus which goes regularly into cairns and it's cheap, and air conditioned and it runs up until about 11pm at night. The bus stop is just down the road from the hotel, you just need to remember to stand on the correct side of the road!

Are there restaurants within walking distance of the resort for dinner.
Hi Dawn, As Janet says, Kewarra Beach Resort is the only Resaurant/Bar and I agree with her that the bus is really easy to use. You can travel to any of the resorts from Kewarra to Cairns on it. If you like Italian, I strongly recommend Fratelli on Trinity - it's on the beachfront road! We loved Kewarra - hope you do. Bill
