Castaways on the Beach Resort, Mission Beach

Castaways on the Beach Resort is the only property positioned right on the sand at Mission Beach, making it the perfect base for your Tropical North Queensland adventure. Mission Beach is named for the 14 kilometre stretch of pristine golden sand that is one of Tropical North Queensland’s best kept secrets. Flanked by lush rainforest and the Coral Sea, the serenity is unmistakable.

Castaways is a three and a half star property with affordable rooms to suit couples, families and groups of adults travelling together. All rooms are fully air-conditioned, have television, tea and coffee making facilities, ensuite bathrooms and look over the beach, the tranquil Coral Sea and the familiar form of Dunk Island.

Castaways has an acclaimed restaurant serving delicious meals throughout the day and into the evening. The poolside cocktail bar is a great place to meet new friends, Mission Beach locals and guests from around Australia and across the globe.

The friendly front desk staff can organise an itinerary to capture the full experience of Australia’s Tropical North. At the end of a day exploring the Great Barrier Reef or World Heritage rainforest you can enjoy a refreshing swim either in the pool or else walk through the palm trees and across the sand into the Coral Sea where a beachside stinger net provides year round protection.

Guests come to Castaways on the Beach at Mission Beach from around the world to enjoy the snorkelling and diving, the fishing, the islands, the rainforests, and of course…the hospitality!
