Set like a jewel between rainforest and reef, Kewarra Beach is prized by locals for being quiet, uncrowded and relaxed. The beach has a glorious aspect and in season, bottle-nosed dolphins and dugongs can be spotted frolicking in the bay nearby.
This idyllic tropical beach is protected from the southerly swell by a rocky headland and during the summer months, stinger nets provide further protection. It’s a great place to escape the heat with a refreshing dip in the pristine waters of the Coral Sea.
The beach itself is very clean and wide with picnic tables and children’s play equipment provided along the fringe.
Spend a little time in the area and you’ll find yourself strolling past luxurious beachfront mansions with panoramic ocean views. The rocky headland is a great place to explore and keen anglers will find the conditions excellent for fishing.
A walk up the beach will take you to exclusive Palm Cove where you can soak up the sights and sounds of this fashionable hot spot. Enjoy fine dining at a trendy beachside restaurant, browse through the shops, and treat yourself to an indulgent day spa.
