Majestic Holloways Beach is only 50 metres away from Pacific Sands. A favourite with locals for its clean sand and clear waters, Holloways Beach is the perfect spot to play with the kids or sit back and relax with a book.

Holloways Beach is patrolled by Life Guards during the warmer months and a stinger net is also in place at this time. This makes Holloways the perfect swimming beach regardless of the season.


Holloways Beach is a sleepy little suburb north of Cairns. The locals are incredibly welcoming and friendly and the area offers a relaxed, no-fuss feel. Reflecting this is the dining options available. Holloways has three highly-regarded eateries; a local sporting club (licensed), one modern Australian (licensed) and the other pizza and pasta (BYO). All offer dine-in and takeaway options are located an easy walk from Pacific Sands.

For those seeking other cuisines, Cairns and Palm Cove offer a range of eateries from family-friendly cafes to award-winning restaurants. Both are only a short drive from Holloways Beach.


Taking advantage of the modern in-room and BBQ facilities at Pacific Sands is easy with an IGA supermarket, two general stores, a newsagent and liquor outlet located nearby. The IGA supermarket even has a delivery service direct to the resort for grocery purchases over $50.

There are a number of major shopping centres in the immediate area including Cairns Central and Smithfield Shopping Centre. These centres feature supermarkets, food courts and a wide range of speciality outlets.
