Holloway's Beach is also largely a residential suburb, but it recently earnt the Tourism Queensland Friendly Beach Award for Tropical North Queensland. Holloways Beach was commended for its friendly environment for both locals and visitors and for the variety of family-friendly facilities, such as children's play equipment, barbecues and picnic shelters. Nearby there are wetlands that you can explore and a bushland trail. The beach is quite popular with locals and you'll be relieved to know that there is a netted swimming enclosure.

Up to the first half of the 20th century, Holloways Beach was known as San Remo. However, after the 2nd World War, in which Australia played a very active role, the Australian government made a huge effort to rehabilitate the country. One of the strategies the government adopted was the creation of post offices all over Australia. When it was time to establish a post office in San Remo, it was discovered that there was another town called San Remo in Victoria. The residents association had to choose another name for their town, and since there were some instances where Holloways Beach had already been used, they decided to give that name to the beautiful seaside village.
