Cannonvale Area

Too far for me to walk, but there are a lot here, including Club Crocodile (Airlie Beach, it says, but it is actually on the far side of the Cannonvale township sign). A few caravan parks as well as lots of apartments. Usually somewhat more economical than in Airlie Beach, but doesn't have as many restaurants (good food shopping area however), and you are much less likely to have a sea view.

Shingley Beach resort near Shingley Beach boat ramp, now open. Also The Anchorage restaurant (closed Monday).

Able Point area to Airlie Beach

Large marina, a store, bottle shop and lots of ship related stores at Abel Point. Interesting seaside walk from Airlie Beach, along a boardwalk and past Coral Sea resort. There are a few Bed and Breakfasts along here at the Airlie Beach end. Others are scattered around, mostly on streets up the hillside before Airlie.

The Esplanade

Faces the beach

Harper St (renamed Watersun) and Golden Orchid Drive

Holiday resorts and residential apartments. Most have good views of the sea and islands. I think Golden Orchid Drive is the most desirable area to stay, but most are three star and above. The walk up the hill can be a problem for some people.

Past Airlie Beach

Not too far if you are energetic or driving. Bit too far out of town otherwise, I think.

Mango House Resort, corner Shute Harbour Road and Erromango Road, 19 self contained apartments in resort complex completed Sept 1998. Swimming pool, spa.

Flame Tree Units and Tourist Village

Island Gateway Holiday Resort

Airlie Cove Resort, Shute Harbour Road, Jubilee Pocket

Bay Terrace Lodge Holiday Apartments, 12 Bay Terrace, Shute Harbour

Coral Point Lodge, Harbour Avenue, Shute Harbour, Resident owners Sue and Peter Reid and Brian Murphy.
