Four Mile Beach is beautiful, but you can only get in the water at places where there are jellyfish nets to protect you from say, certain death at the tentacles of the Box Jellyfish. Fine if you stay on the sand.

It was very hot and would need to hire the chair and umbrella for $30 au. and $40 au if you wanted he cushion. A bit pricy if you were only thinking of staying an hour.

From Nov - March is sting season and so you can't swim in the water. This was disappointing as it's so hot that a trip to this beach without going in the water feels brutal. The beach itself is pretty, the sand is fine and light coloured. Bonus- there's full cell phone coverage! Ideal if your resort lacks this. Worth... More

This was a pretty cool walk. Very expansive and seemingly secluded beach. We came 09/02/2016 so it is very hot, humid and the water is teaming with jelly fish. Still, very pretty and awesome place.

Love walking along this beach!! Always something interesting to see!! As the house we stay in has beach access, it's fun to walk up to The Beach Shack ( For dinnner, not open for lunch) via The Beach or the otherway down to the Surf/Lifesaving club for lunch or dinner.

We went in February and it is a crocodiles and jellyfish season, so we couldn"t enter in that amazing sea... They have a space with nets to swing, but it is not the same... But we enjoyed the view and the Great Barrier Reef a lot!

This beach is left natural on purpose. That means there is lots of seaweed, palm fronds and other debris on the beach. You can''t swim here during stinger season.

My first ever snorkeling in the Low Isles was fantastic! The ladies with Sailaway Tours were really good.
