Trinity Beach is a popular, well developed beach located 2 km east of the Cook Highway, approximately 15 km north of Cairns. The 1.5 km long beach faces north-east and is bounded by 215 m high Earl Hill to the south and 60 m high Taylor Point to the north. Trinity Beach shopping centre is located behind the centre of the southern half of the beach. In addition, facilities for both locals and tourists are available along the beachfront, which includes a continuous foreshore reserve, parking and backing road. The beach is composed of coarse sand that produces a steep, narrow beach at high tide with little surf, and a wider, lower gradient, exposed, 40 m wide bar at low tide, with a wider surf. Waves average 0.5 m, picking up during strong south-easterly winds. Lifeguards patrol the central beach area where the stinger enclosure is located.

Swimming

It is safest to swim in the central patrolled area, and in the enclosure during stinger season.

Surfing

Usually low waves that break better at mid to low tide, and are a little higher during strong south-east winds.

Fishing

Best at high tide off the beach, and off the rocks at each end.

General

A well developed and popular beach with all facilities, plus lifeguards and a stinger enclosure.
