We stayed at Hideaway Caravan Park, just across the road from Mission Beach. Mission Beach is a beautiful sandy beach, lined with coconut palms and is where the rainforest meets the sea. " Hideaway " is a lovely, quiet, park on the edge of heritage listed rainforest, so we heard birds singing. It also has a sheltered pool and was warm enough for a swim. We loved the coffee & view from the café right on the beach front. We saw council workers cutting coconuts for hazard reduction on the beach so we collected a fresh coconut! It had lots of soft fruit & juice, & was delicious. We are looking forward to coming back here for 6 days later on.
