is the northernmost patrolled beach of Cairns
in Australia. A look at the photos is enough to understand that it could not be better. There are only a few cheap hotels, thus giving romantic low key charm to this place located on a suberb tropical beach. Shore and seabed: sand. 
It is worth to stay here, only if you need a car camping. In this case, you will get a glamorous parking directly by the beach with palm trees.
In all other cases, it will be better to choose a hotel in the nearby Palm Cove
beach located just to the south. It is almost as good as Ellis beach, but the choice of hotels is much better. Find hotels in Ellis
