Shute Harbour used to be the main place in Airlie Beach to depart on day trips, but now there is Abell Point Marina, so Shute Harbour is not as busy. You can get a local bus there, which at $7.20 return for 2 is very reasonable. We did a walk to Coral Beach, from the lookout, which is through the rainforest down to the beach with tons of broken coral, took us about 1 hour round trip at a brisk pace. There are toilets but no longer a cafe.
