Cairns Beach Resort, Holloways Beach

When I was in Cairns I didn’t stay in the city but I had an apartment in Cairns Beach Resort, the closest beach resort to Cairns. The beachfront resort is at the suburb Holloways Beach Cairns, at a quiet and relaxed location.


All rooms are very spacious and self-contained. They are overlooking the tropical coral sea or the beautiful tropical garden and pool. They have their own kitchen and laundry, this was very convenient. Click here for bookings.

I loved the pool area at Cairns Beach Resort, it was very clean and there were enough sunbeds. Next to the pool there was a barbecue area for everyone to use.

At Cairns Beach Resort they have enough facilities to make your stay pleasant. The resort has an extensive DVD collection and a free book library. They have internet available for guest use and there are WiFi hotspots around the property. There is generous car parking available with a large number of undercover parks. This keeps your vehicle out of the tropical sun.

The location of Cairns Beach resort was perfect. Holloways Beach is a suburb only 12 minutes north of the centre of Cairns City by car. Holloways Beach has a population of nearly 2,500. It’s a quiet suburb but it has all the facilities you’ll need.

There are a few restaurants, a convenience store and a liquor store within 2 minutes walking distance from the resort. You’ll find the larger grocery stores like Coles and Woolworths at the mall in Smithfield which is about a 10 minute drive from Cairns Beach Resort.

The Beach
The beach is only a few meters away from the resort. And it is a beautiful beach with lovely palm trees and great views. Holloways Beach is the closest swimming beach to Cairns. The beach is patrolled by a lifeguard all year round. It has a stinger net to protect swimmers in the high risk stinger season.

Don’t worry about deciding what to see in the limited time you have available on your holiday. At Cairns Beach Resort they have a full tour desk and the staff is very knowledgeable on the local attractions and which tour operators provide best value for money. This is a free service.
