Our first night in Port Douglas we walked down to the beach at night. We wondered where everyone was until we encountered a sign that said crocodiles may be present. We decided then to return to the town until morning! Seriously though - great, beautiful beach!

Hard flat beach which seemed full of walkers, bikers, exercisers and relaxers! Nice safe beach for swimming...especially since there are no stingers at this time of the year! Got a bit windy at times.

We didn't walk the whole beach but we did walk a mile every day so we sort of did the Four Miles. Like all beaches it changed every day but it was just spectacular and beautiful.

You cannot come to Port Douglas and not visit this place, So warm in "Winter" great place to swim in July and fantastic views looking back towards the tablelands, tropical mountains and amazing blue coral sea.

Each morning I ran along 4 mile beach - so beautiful - a great distance... usually beaches are shorted so you have to re-run your route to get a decent run in.... but I would run to the end and back ! so so lovely. Even though it was peak tourist season it was quiet in the mornings. the afternoons... More

Good beach for a long walk. Not a good place for swimming, only allowed to swim in small netted areas. The water is rough along shoreline making the water to appear dirty from all the sediments floating about

We enjoyed spending two long afternoons at Four Mile Beach. The sand is packed quite hard so it's a great place to walk, bike, sunbathe...probably build sandcastles as well but my kids are beyond that now! They enjoyed playing soccer on the beach though. There's a smallish area that is marked out with flags to indicate it's a lifeguard area.... More

A great beach for a walk. Note the signs indicating there can be crocodiles. The water is clean but not crystal clear due to the mud flats and run off from the nearby hills after rain. There is no surf as the beach is inside the reef. You can swim during the winter months but can't swim during the summer... More

Beautiful & clean beach. We enjoyed many walks along the beach and enjoyed a beautiful sunrise as well. So peaceful for such a big beach. Take the time to relax and enjoy.

We ran along this beach every morning. The scene is slightly different every day. The sun rises on this beach so to experience it properly you have to be up on down at the beach by 6.45am. Worth the early morning though. The water was really warm around 25°.
