To be able to walk this 4-mile beach stretch is always a pleasure and so much "going on" on and off-shore.

We adored wandering along the soft sand of this beach. We watched the kite surfers and loved the warm sun. Late august and the beach wasn't at all busy

The sea breeze kicks in mid-morning and while chopping up the sea and stirring up the sand it's refreshing. An early morning dunk is the perfect wake up - flat sea, clearer water and very refreshing. Walk to the far end when the wind is up to watch the kite surfers - very cool!!

We actually walked the beach this time but found the water and the beach a little dirty. From the vantage high up in the hills it looks great but not from down below. We were quite disappointed.

While it was really pleasant to stroll along the stretches, I think Mornington Peninsula have better beaches.

If you stay in Port you really should do the 4 mile beach walk. We walked to the end and then came back and went to the Sheriton for a cocktail by the pool then had to catch a cab back to town. It is a beautiful part of the world.

Took a leisurely 1 hour stroll through the surf, water was beautiful temperature even in August. Palm trees fringe the beach and hills in the distance, even an ice cream bike going up and down if you got too hot. Seep rate area at town end with beds, umbrellas and lifeguards although water was shallow and safe at the far... More

The beach is clean. The water is free of rubbish. There is a gentle sandy slope. The beach is safe for children. Great for cycling along except for high tide. Great for sunbathing, reading or playing in the sand. No swimming except in a stinger suit November to May.

Beautiful beach, we walked around 5 pm, all the way from Craiglie to Port Douglas (about 2 or 3 miles, a solid but easy hour walk) The sand is hard packed and easy to walk on, there were mysterious small crabs making they way around there too. Lots of locals were walking their dogs after work, a couple of people... More
