Top 5 Beers on the Beach
Check out where we’ve chosen the best places in FNQ for a beer on the beach!
STRAIT ON THE BEACH
A unique, relaxed, beachfront, dining experience. This place is reminiscent of the beach bars of Thailand or Bali. Fantastic location, awesome menu (where else can you get 7 variations of Eggs Benedict served with your feet in the sand). They also have an extensive lunch and dinner menu that caters to everyone’s needs. There’s live music every Sunday (3-6pm) which is the highlight of the week. The locals in Holloways Beach will tell you the Full Moon Dinners ($25 for dinner and dessert) are a must every full moon!
MILLERS BEACH BAR
There are very few coastal views that rival that of Mission Beach. Shaded by palms, Millers Beach Bar and Grill basks in these views, and also has a stellar menu with fresh food, great wine and friendly service. Grab a drink from the bar this Sunday, find a seat outside and relax with the live music as you peer out to Dunk Island off the coast. You won’t regret your trip south of the city.
THE BEACH SHACK
A place to take your friends from out of town to give them a taste of tropical living, the Beach Shack at Kewarra Beach Resort is one of the most unique dining experiences in Cairns. On Friday and Sunday afternoons, make your way to the beach through the resort and you’ll find a picturesque outdoor setting complete with festoon lighting, sea breeze and ocean views lined with palm trees. Leave your Gucci slippers at home, and yield to thongs and sandals. Book a table or find your spot on the sand and enjoy your beers, cocktails or wood-fired pizzas while listening to their live music and the sounds of the sea.
Perpetuating the lifestyle of leisure, O’Shea’s Beachfront Restaurant and Bar wants you to kick your feet up and enjoy a drink at one of the quietest beaches north of Cairns. Watch the day turn to night and the cruise ships come and go as you nurse your craft beers, or cocktails on the patio. We encourage you to stay for dinner, and treat yourself to their mean food and dessert menus!
PORT DOUGLAS SURF CLUB
One of the closest venues to the beach in the township, the Port Douglas Surf Club Bar & Bistro is popular with travellers who want that ocean dining experience. This al fresco setting is arguably the best place to have a beer overlooking the sea in Port Douglas. Don’t just take our word for it, stop by for a drink sometime!
