Literally being a stones throw from the beach has its pros and cons. Fantastic to sit out on the balcony overlooking the ocean accompanied by some crackers, cheese and a bottle of wine. On the flip side, excessive exposure to the salty air made the carpets and furnishing feel very sticky and unclean.

We were in a one bedroom apartment above the pool area. The accommodation was cosy, no frills. The kitchenette was sufficient for a few nights but if you intend on self catering for a longer stay, you might find the kitchen to be limited.

Note that this is not a serviced apartment complex so you’ll need to wash your dishes & take out your rubbish daily. There is also a stern notice in the kitchen that threatens an additional cleaning fee if the apartment is left in a messy state upon check out which I found to be over the top.

Management were helpful in providing local advice and the longer term residence of the complex were quite friendly.

On a side note, definitely book a table at Blue Moon Grill while in Trinity Beach. Extensive menu with a local twist. Don’t order an entree, they serve large portions, providing good service along with a large choice of Australian and foreign beers.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at Trinity Beach. On The Beach provides self contained apartments so that people can enjoy a relaxing and private stay at one of the best beaches in Far North Queensland.
There are plenty of great places to eat out, including Blue Moon Grill, and a great tavern at the other end of the beach for good value bar meals.
We look forward to welcoming you back during your next visit to Trinity Beach.
Best regards

Very nice apartments facing the beach. Not a lot of cooking facilities but nice food eating out. The beach is very good but a limited area for swimming as that area of coast has marine stingers and saltwater crocodiles. The safe area is cordoned of and has a lifeguard.

Room tip: Facing the beach is best.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review Sue. The one bedroom apartments have a kitchenette of course, with hot plates, microwave and cooking utensils; perfect for breakfast and lunch if you're dining in. There are some great restaurants within easy walking distance for an enjoyable dinner within sight and ear shot of beautiful Trinity Beach.
The swimming enclosure, and lifeguard, on the beach ensures that everyone has a great time when swimming at Cairns favourite beach.
Best regards

We always stay here in Trinity Beach. Amazing location opposite the beach with stunning views. The self contained apartments are modern, spacious and we love to sit out on the balcony to relax and unwind. The pool is a decent size for those that don’t want to cross the road to the beach. Cafes and the Surf Club are all within a few minutes walking distance. Highly recommended.

Thank you for taking the time to write a great Chris, it is very much appreciated by the whole team at On The Beach.
On The Beach has the perfect location at Trinity Beach, literally a stones throw from the swimming enclosure on the beach. And of course there is always the swimming pool for the less adventurous swimmers.
We really look forward to welcoming you back to On The Beach during your next trip to Trinity Beach.
Best regards

Stayed in the one bedroom apartment on the top floor.
Was great to sit with an early morning coffee on the balcony after a swim.
Nice to have undercover parking out the back.
Local eateries were quite good.
If you want a quiet place to kick back Trinity Beach is the go.

We stayed during the end of July. The location is great, just opposite the beach. The staff are helpful and friendly and the apartment was spotless. We had a one bedroom apartment on the ground floor, in front of the pool. Although opposite the beach, being on the ground floor meant that we couldn’t see the view that well. If staying here, request an upper floor apartment.

Although the apartment was spotless, it was a little tired and needed updating. The living area was very comfortable and the kitchen is well appointed but didn’t have an oven (which we were aware of prior to booking). The bedroom was small and the mattress was just okay. The dining chairs had a covers on them, but the vinyl underneath was was peeling and a bit shabby.

It was a comfortable stay and the apartments are in a great location, but the apartment we stayed in, although comfortable, needed updating.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate you feedback.
It is possible to see the ocean from all one bedroom apartments, but of course the view improves as you move higher up the building.
We look forward to welcoming you back one day.
Best regards
