Ellis Beach Palm Cove Clifton Beach Kewarra Beach Trinity Beach Yorkeys Knob Holloways Beach Machans Beach Stretching for 26 kilometres along the coast north of the city of Cairns are a number of beaches that are popular with visitors to the region.

Beginning with Machans Beach on the northern side of the mouth of the Barron River, a mere ten minute drive from the city centre, and ending at Ellis Beach, is what is known as the Marlin Coast.

Traveling north along Captain Cook Highway there are eight separate beach communities, each with their own interesting histories and each with their own distinct characters.
