  • Great place to just relax in Cairns. The beach is not really viable, so going to the "lagoon" is a great way to cool down. There is plenty of room to relax in the pool as well as the grounds around it. Lots of great scenery for everyone to enjoy. When u want a snack there are convenient places to eat all around. Best of all .... Free WiFi in Cairns and it is strong along the waterfront
  • It's an awesome place to be at. It's a kind of artificial sea pool with variable heights for all age people be it a two year old kid or sixty year old enjoying life. The sea is adjacent to it but hardly anyone go there as it's properly separated. Infact why would you go there if you get all the enjoyment here only. The pool height varies from 0.5 meters to about 2 meters so you can swim, enjoy and play according. The place is surrounded by parks, a big market, some pubs, restaurants and hotels. It's a must visit place for everyone.
  • A lovely swimming pool by the sea... The views are great. Very kid friendly. Not very deep. U can sit in or outside the pool if u don't want to swim. Great time for the entire family. Nice shower and changing room facilities. Few limited lockers to keep your belongings but it gets over fast.
  • Nice spot for a stinger free swim. Various depths, clean and well kept. Kids were having a blast. Good evening activity after a day trip or if you just need to unwind.
  • Must see place. I love spending weekends on esplanade live music and it fee to dance with the biggest dance area. Best bands play esplanade
