Beach

Just a beach like many other beaches. Empty when we where there but it was during sting season. Maybe it´s better during Winter.

Don't get me wrong, I really like Port Douglas--it's a nice little beach town with friendly people. But haven been to so many better beaches has left me to compare.

The beach was stunning, just as you imagine a tropical beach to be. There is an area netted off so that you are not in danger of being stung by jelly fish, there is also a lifeguard present. The signs along the edge of the beach warn swimmers and walkers ofvthe possible danger presented by jelly fish and........ salt water... More

Nice and secluded. If you want a restful swim protected by a net in the ocean or just to sit and soak up the Rays, the beach is pretty quite and super easy to access.

Stinger season plus rough waters meant no swimming allowed, however I was quite amused by the tiny crabs and their little balls of sand. Nice area for walks and occasional people watching.

Exceptional and private very long beach. The best end is by the Pullman resort. There are no lifeguards there but it is quiet and commonly visited by locals with their dogs. Wonderful windsurfer watching

Box jelly fish prevented us from venturing into the sea outside the safety net, but the beach is quite stunning and great to stroll along.

By far the most relaxing day out of my entire three week Australian holiday (that took me all over the country). Four Mile Beach in and of itself is one of the most gorgeous beaches I've ever seen. I rented a chair and umbrella for the day (I think it was AU$20, maybe even AU$10, I can't remember) and it... More

This beach is like going to the ice cream store when dieting... It is very beautiful and the water is warm, but marine stingers during most of the year makes necessary to bath only on the safe area (close to Port Douglas Village). This area is naturally crowded, while the other 3,9 miles are empty. Its a shame!
