I love Clifton Beach. Its close to Palm Cove, has it's own Coles away from the hustle of Smithfield and has a great big beachfront BBQ area for yourself and the extended family. Its a family friendly community.
Loved living here. People are genuinely friendly and stop to have a chat. There are a few restaurant, speciality shops and a Coles. It's not over developed and has lots of potential for the future. Property is reasonablly priced considering distance to the beach and infrastructure existing.
Highs Clifton has a beautiful beach, is one of the safest suburbs in Cairns, has a small shopping Centre, is definitely family friendly Lows Clifton is hot! All the beach suburbs can be a few degrees hotter then inland suburbs. Although the beaches are beautiful they're rarely used because it's too hot and there's stingers and sometimes crocs.
