Esplanade Lagoon Pool offers one of the best places to beat the Cairns heat. Look out on the Barrier Reef and Trinity inlet from this 4,800 sq m (51,666 sq ft) saltwater lagoon. The lagoon water is saltwater from the inlet run through a filtration system. The sandy perimeter provides material for sand castles, and kids can wade in the lagoon's shallow water. To relax, recline on the timber deck beneath a shady tree. By using our Cairns day trip website, you can arrange your visit to Esplanade Lagoon Pool and other attractions in Cairns.

  • Lovely area on the esplanade with carparking ( paid ) handy. Plenty of restaurants, takeaway, coffee shops and very handy to the main shopping precinct plus the night markets  more »
  • Great spot in Cairns, really clean and well maintained. As Cairns doesn't have a proper beach this is the next best thing. Everyone seems to be having a great time, well worth a visit.  more »

  • What a great free public space to enjoy. Safe and clean and big enough so you are not swimming on-top of others. Very family friendly. Nice lawn areas around also.
  • Hey, it's free! What's not to love?! You get a great view while cooling off and they also have free community classes in the morning. A schedule is up to check out. Showers with lockers are also available right alongside to take the stress out of losing car keys etc while you relax with a police beat on the shore as well as security cameras everywhere. Safe, secure and clean they're also patrolled by lifeguards during the day.
