Lugger Bay development proximity - and stingers

Hi. We are thinking for coming to Mission Beach for a week or so around 23rd of October. I have seen a lovely looking property in the Lugger Bay development (on Explorer Drive). Is this easy walking distance down to the beach - and also to the cafes and shops? Sorry to ask - but also, have the stingers arrived yet? Thanks in advance.

You are really at the wrong end of Mission Beach for cafes and shops. There is a store/cafe at Beachcomber Coconut Caravan Village, about 2km away, but that's it for South Mission Beach. The actual Mission Beach village shops are about 12km from Explorer Drive. There is a new shopping centre with a supermarket at the Wongaling Beach turnoff, but that's about 8km from Explorer Drive.

We do our Mission Beach holiday bookings through this site.

There is a map showing the location of each property.

There are 2 stinger nets, one in front of Castaways Resort at the end of Seaview St, and the other at South Mission Beach on Kennedy Esplanade in front of Beachcomber Coconut Caravan Village. I don't know if the stingers are around yet, but you should expect them by mid to late October.

Lugger Bay at Mission Beach is truly amazing. If you get a chance to rent one of the houses in the gated estate definitely do it! It is the most surreal place I have ever been. Views, rainforest, privacy!! There's nothing like it. The houses and land sites are owned by some seriously wealthy dudes, so it is World Class..

Thanks for your input - really appreciated. Didn't manage to make the trip - went to San Francisco instead but hoping to get to Lugger Bay in the near future.
