Myall Beach, Cape Tribulation

Swaying palm trees fringe the sands, seemingly holding back the rainforest as it tumbles down the slopes towards the ocean.

Attraction facilities

Soak up the sun and dig your toes into the sand at stunning Myall Beach, just south of the rocky headland of Cape Tribulation.
