Best picture spot in Cairns

I will be in Cairns for one week and I want to know the best place to take pictures. Some place where I could have a picture of myself taken with both the beach and mountains in the background, without a lot of people. Hopefully there is a spot like this and y'all can help a fella out.

There is no beach in Cairns proper and no real mountains. Yes there is a rise of hills.

You might manage it from the beach at Palm Cove

I mean in the general area -- not actually in city limits or anything. And thanks for the suggestion!

There were a couple of great beaches along the drive from Cairns to Port Douglas that you could probably get this sort of photo, as the coast curved to the side of the beach so you could take a picture down the beach and get the hills in the background.
