This magnificent beach provides superb views and is a great place to walk and admire the exotic vegetation that backs the beach. Unfortunately, from January to April swimming is forbidden due to the presence of dangerous stinger jelly fish in the water. At the Port Douglas end of the beach, there is a netted area where you can swim and... More

The start is on the edge of the Port Douglas main street and even in stinger season the walk is challenging, but pretty. There was a small netted area to cool off or just swim. Lovely walk for the reasonably fit - and hey - just turn around if it is too far to go all the way.

My wife and I were in Port Douglas at the start of October and I have to say the daily walks from our accommodation to the beach were the best part of the trip. The water was an excellent temperature and the surf had just enough to it to be fun to play in but not rough enough to dump... More

This was in walking distance to our Villa at Fullmoon, the beach goes for miles, and has a brilliant surf patrolled area with nets, so you can swim all year round.

We were here in the rainy and box jelly fish season. Went for a walk after some severe rainstorms and the beach was pretty messed up with debris from the sea. You can walk up some steps for a great view then walk around the back of the resort back into town. It is probably a great place at a... More

This is a beautiful long stretch of beach. A pity we could only swim inside the nets in December because of stingers.

This beach on a hot day is great for a quick dip but not during the summer months when the stingers are around. It's a nice walk along the beach as long as there are no dogs out of control. Unfortunately Port Douglas Shire Council has no control over dogs, especially when in town. Dogs in restaurants, dogs off leash.... More

This beach is pretty long, hence the name, and it's nice to run or walk along in the early morning before it gets too hot. Don't be tempted to swim in the water as there are dangerous jelly fish I'm the water during a large part of the year. A sting is potentially fatal. However, there is a netted area... More

The beach was indeed long however mother nature decided to unleash some bad weather, high winds, rain etc which meant the "stinger" net was taken out of the water. Swimming was not allowed in any part and the beach was littered with seaweed. Did not look as inviting as the pictures. Stayed in Port Douglas for 7 days and this... More
