Arrived from rainy Cairns to sunny Mission Beach in March this year. What a contrast!!! My wife fell in love with the place as soon as we arrived as being on honeymoon it was exactly what we were looking for - a secluded paradise.
We arrived by bus from Cairns which actually drops you off a Wongaling Beach which is about 4km from Mission so you will have to get a cab to get here but there is a tourist information shop at the bus stop which will organise this for you.
We arrived at Sejala for a short 2 day stay not really knowing what to expect as there is not much on the internet about it but what was there is absolutley spot on. Sejala has three beach huts (Waves, Beaches and Coral) and one beach house. The three beach huts look identical. We stayed in Waves and the accommodation was superb. It was a self contained hut with bed, living area, small kitchen (no cooker but there was a BBQ on the balcony), TV, cable, DVD etc and a bathroom that had a corrugated iron shower surround. This seems weird but is actually very trendy (in my opinion). There are no owners or staff on site but if you have any problems they are only a phone call away. The first thing you will want to do is run down to the beautiful beach which has views out to Dunk island. The pristine beach is literally about 10 yards away down a path through a coconut grove. We arrived there at about 2pm and there was hardly a footprint in the sand. There is also a small pool in the complex which we did not try out but it looked very clean.
The main centre of Mission Beach containing the restaurants etc is about a 10 minute walk away either by road or up the beach. This contains a small supermarket, restaurants, bottle shop, post office etc. A word of warning however - during the low season its pretty hard to find a restaurant open later in the evening - we tried to get dinner at about 9pm one night and found it virtually impossible. We managed to beg one place to let us in.
Unfortunatley we had only scheduled 2 days to stay here but wish we had planned more though if we had Cyclone Larry might have forced us to evacuate anyway as Mission Beach was hit by the storm 2 days later. Hopefully this place did not suffer too much damage.
Overall this place is excellent and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to get away from it all for a piece of your own secluded paradise.
