Thornton Beach

Thornton Beach on the Daintree coast.

Thornton Beach is a small community on the road between the Daintree river and Cape Tribulation with only a dozen or so houses on a beautiful beach.
There are only two accommodation choices here, Thornton Beach Bungalows and Thornton Beach House, which are both on the same property, only steps away from the beach and the cafe.

The small island of Struck Rock offshore from the beach adds to the scenic beauty of this pristine stretch of coast line.

Thornton Beach is located in the heart of the Daintree National Park about half an hour north of the Daintree river and fifteen minutes south of Cape Tribulation.
You can go for a walk along this beach, but don't swim in Cooper Creek at the south end of the beach, this is where the croc spotting tour spots all the big crocodiles.
There is a cafe on this beach where you can stop for lunch or a coffee.
This is also the base for Cape Tribulation Wilderness Cruises that runs crocodile spotting trips on Cooper Creek 300 metres south of here.
