Located five minutes north of Palm Cove, Ellis Beach is a favourite for locals.

Situated right on the highway Ellis Beach is a pristine, unspoilt piece of paradise.

With views of double Island to the south and the Daintree to the north, this truly is a stunning and beautiful beach.

These is no town here, but you will find a restaurant / cafe and tavern across the road, as well as the Surf Club, and the beach side villas of the Ellis Beach caravan park – Ocean Front Bungalows.

There are toilets here, and the beach is patrolled by lifesavers, and there is an enclosed stinger net during the stinger season – and that is it!

Just keep in mind the highway by the beach can get very busy, so watch young kids when crossing the road.
