Kewarra Beach

Set like a jewel between rainforest and reef, Kewarra Beach is prized by locals for being quiet, uncrowded and relaxed. The beach has a glorious aspect and in season, bottle-nosed dolphins and dugongs can be spotted frolicking in the bay nearby.

This idyllic tropical beach is protected from the southerly swell by a rocky headland and during the summer months, stinger nets provide further protection. It’s a great place to escape the heat with a refreshing dip in the pristine waters of the Coral Sea.

The beach itself is very clean and wide with picnic tables and children’s play equipment provided along the fringe.

Spend a little time in the area and you’ll find yourself strolling past luxurious beachfront mansions with panoramic ocean views. The rocky headland is a great place to explore and keen anglers will find the conditions excellent for fishing.

A walk up the beach will take you to exclusive Palm Cove where you can soak up the sights and sounds of this fashionable hot spot. Enjoy fine dining at a trendy beachside restaurant, browse through the shops, and treat yourself to an indulgent day spa.

Located just 20 minutes drive north of the city of Cairns, the main accommodation available at Kewarra Beach is offered by a beachside resort.

Kewarra Beach is just 10 minutes drive from the Cairns airport.
