Quarantine Bay is located 8 km by road from Cooktown and 4 km off the Cooktown Road. It is a 1 km long, north-east facing beach, lying in lee of the densely vegetated 100 m high Monkhouse Point, that protrudes 1 km seaward of the southern end of the beach.
The point together with Mount Cook, which rises 415 m in lee of the beach, surround the beach with steep, tropical slopes. A road crosses a saddle toward the southern end, giving good access to the beach and a few beach houses that back the central and northern section of the beach.
There are no facilities.The beach is backed by dense vegetation. It has a steeper high tide beach that contains a mixture of sand and gravel, while at low tide a low gradient bar grades into wide tidal shoals toward the southern half. Polished granite boulders dot the beach, while the granite rocks of the headlands fringe each end.
