Your private Elite Cairns Mercedes driver will collect you from our Reef House valet area or alternatively drive your Avis-Budget hire car just 20 minutes north of Palm Cove to Oak Beach. As you approach resplendent rows of coconut palms within the Plantation, you have arrived at the deluxe Eco Retreat of Thala Beach Lodge. Meander along nature/wildlife walks, a Coconut Odyssey tour and specialist talks from local experts. In-house guests and visitors alike are invited to dine in the treetops at the popular Ospreys Restaurant, with unsurpassed views all the way out to Low Isles. After lunch, hang in the beach hammock or have a holiday drink at the nearby beach shack.




Collect an in-house complimentary fishing rod , bait & beverages; Remove your shoes and go for brisk barefoot walk from The Reef House along the beach, heading north all the way to and along the jetty.

Try your luck at catching a local fish or simply relax in the glistening sunshine on-looking the beauty of Double Island and Scout Hat Island. This may give you inspiration to consider a following sunrise kayak turtle spotting tour hosted by Andy at Pacific WaterSports







A great afternoon walk is south along Williams Esplanade, turn right along Vievers Rd then turn left on Triton, walk to the Pullman Sea Temple and keep going along the path, you will end up at Clifton Beach.  Walk to Clifton Road along the beach pathway and turn right, on the next corner you will see Coco Mojo Restaurant.   Just in time to try one of their original Hawaiian Recipe Mai Tai in a Tiki Mug and some great nibbles from their global Tapas menu.
