Beautiful beach for walking

This beach is spectacularly beautiful. Unfortunately for swimming it's not the best, as most of the coastline receives muddy water from estuaries around the area I think. But it... read more

This beach is spectacularly beautiful. Unfortunately for swimming it's not the best, as most of the coastline receives muddy water from estuaries around the area I think. But it was still lovely for a dip. I'd recommend going on a boat trip to the Low Isles for blue water swimming, or up to Mossman Gorge - but otherwise the beach... More

One of the most beautiful beaches in the world. A great spot to walk the 4 miles or laze the day away under the palms.

Spent the last couple of mornings of this years trip fishing top end of 4 mile beach near Barrier ST. There were Schools of fish busting up all along the beach. Wading in the shallows and casting soft plastics to the fish as you see them come to the surface was very effective. Only fishing fairly light (3-4 KG) so... More

Long promenade.Good firm sand for a long walk. Sand was not really great for sunbaking. Gentle and extended water entry suitable for the not-so-fit.

The sand is ideal to bike the whole beach in total 12 kms. Don´t miis the last part, because at the very beach is very shallow

The beach has pristine sand. One can walk or ride a bike. The beach is patrolled which is good for young families.

Such a lovely beach. It was packed the day we were there, maybe because it wasn't stinger season. Part of this beach is patrolled by life guards.

Beach is wide and very long and unspoilt by any development. Sand is hard and flat making it easy to walk on. I think it is arguably one of the best beaches in the world. It certainly made Port Douglas a wonderful place to visit.

Perfect beach for a stroll - or even bike ride - as we witnessed a few people riding along the firmly packed sand. There are daily yoga classes held at the northern end (fees apply). A lovely spot to view the sunrise as you walk along and breath in the fresh sea air.

This was a nice beach near a cute, coastal town of Port Douglas. It was a little 'higher end' than I thought, but it was very nice with good access to the reef and the rainforest and, with some extra driving the cool outback town of Chillagoe.
