Sun- and fun-lovers flock to Cairns’ Esplanade's spectacular swimming lagoon on the city’s reclaimed foreshore. The artificial, sandy-edged, 4800m² chlorinated saltwater pool is lifeguard patrolled and illuminated nightly. The adjacent 3km foreshore boardwalk has picnic areas, free barbecues and fitness equipment. Families should follow it north to the play-mazing Muddy's playground.
