“Not Worth wasting your time”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Mission Beach is not worth wasting your time and money to visit, very few shops or restaurants worth visiting prices are ridiculous and not value for money.Save your time and money and stay at one of the many other places in the area

“Nice and laid back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

It's hard to get over enthusiastic about Mission Beach, because there are just so many stunning ones in Queensland - you do tend to get spoilt. Mission Beach is a standard stopping off point for back packers, so it is a quite chilled out place. The beach is unspoilt and classically tropical, with plenty of parking along the beachfront road. Great views across to Dunk Island. No swimming in Stinger season unfortunately.

A nice beach, plenty of accommodation at all price levels and a reasonable choice of bars and restaurants - what's not to like.

“Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

This place is fantastic. It is so good, I bought a house here. I prefer Mission Beach to Wangling Beach and South Mission Beach, as they are too populated. Mission Beach proper is a nice little village. The beach is absolutely beautiful. Probably the best in Queensland with views out to Dunk island and beyond. The water is warm like a bath. But the wet season can be cruel, and visitors must understand to pick their months to visit, especially in the wet when there can be NO swimming in the ocean due stingers

“Two different experiences!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

Have been twice, once in beautiful, calm weather when I loved the place and the beach.

Another time it was stormy, the beach a bit messed up, the sea grey and unappealling and the whole place seemed a bit sorry for itself.

Its a quiet little town but with some cafes/restaurants and a couple of drinking holes. There is a small tourist infrastructure and a relaxed North Queensland atmosphere. Several walks around town in the rainforest offer the opportunity of cassowary sightings (although I've not seen one in three efforts).

“Not a lot to see”

The info centre always a good place to start. Lovely lady in there with lots of knowledge.Drove around a bit but nothing suited us. Not to say it wouldn't suit others needs.
