Mission Beach Accommodation

The best part about Mission Beach is that you actually feel like you've stumbled upon something secluded, secret and special. Of all the beaches in Far North Queensland, Mission Beach is unquestionably the most stunning.

The sand is soft, fine grained, and a beautiful apricot tinted white. The water is calm, on the turquoise side of aqua, and perfect for watersports. Upon the Mission Beach horizon is Dunk Island, a famous tropical island destination.

The accommodation in Mission Beach tends to reflect the casual beach location. You'll find many holiday homes, the odd bed & breakfast, 5 star suites and apartments (and penthouses!) and even a backpacker resort.

Our editors' personal favourite are the absolute beachfront holiday homes which take advantage of their splendid location, many being purpose-built for holiday letting. The tropical homes often have open plan living spaces, gorgeous landscaped gardens and gourmet kitchens. All perfect for getting away comfortably, for a couple, or for a family.
