Marlin Cove Resort was born in 1996 and has spent it's time going from strength-to-strength ever since. While I could list every feature and facility the Resort has on offer, use every cliche I know and convince you our heated lap pool is 'heavenly', our lagoon pool is a 'joy to behold' and our tennis court is a 'fitness enthusiasts dream' - what I believe is important about us is simple, and doesn't need flowery descriptions. We're an enjoyable place to stay, and we'd love to meet you. (And the pool is quite nice.)

Having lived, worked and played in the region for close to 10 years now, there's nowhere better I could imagine calling home! From boasting two world heritage listed areas, a virtual playground of adventure activities, world-class shopping, amazing foodie finds, a nightlife scene to rival the best - actually, we'll stop there or I'll run out of room. Let's just say I'm the one on the tour desk handing out piles and piles of brochures like a mad woman, getting increasingly excited if it's your first time to the region, or I get to show you something you've never seen before - come find me!

Trinity Beach is like the cool Aunt of the Cairns Beaches - the relaxed, care-free, 'we-don't-mind-if-you-don't-wear-shoes-to-dinner-you-don't-eat-with-you-feet-anyway' bohemian personality of the region. Quiet and unassuming, Trinity Beach doesn't boast its charms, so much as lay them out on the palm-fringed beach and just let you calmly soak the days away in them. We host restaurants, a small shopping centre, parks, bush walks - and when we drag you out of your relaxed slumber for long enough to see the rest of the region, you'll find we're one of the most easy, centrally located areas you could have chosen to stay in. Good pick, you!
