Gently swaying coconut palms line the golden sandy foreshore at Holloways Beach. Just 10 minutes’ drive north of Cairns in Far North Queensland, Holloways is one of the first of the city’s famous northern beaches. Its relaxed, tropical vibe makes it the perfect beach to relax with a good book and catch up on some “me” time. The clean gentle waters of the Coral Sea are protected with stinger nets during the summer months, making Holloways Beach great for swimming and splashing with the kids. Accommodation ranges from affordable self-contained units to a five star resort right on the beach.
