Where to Stay

I want to snorkel as much as possible on our trip to GBR in July. Should I stay in Cairns or Port Douglas? I understand that I will likely have to take trips to see the best there is to offer. Any recommendations?

How long do you have for your hols ??

Cairns is closer to the airport whilst Port Douglas is 1 hour drive north. My preference is PD due to it having a lovely beach, good restaurants & cafes.

Maybe consider splitting your time between the two depending on how long you have ?
