Unusual for an Australian beach, the sand is very clay like and churns up in the shallows so the first 20 metres looks dirty, but on a flat day its not too bad. The sea is a beautiful colour and the beach is great for walking, running, etc as it is hard. Great palm trees along the way

Great little swim here after googling extensively why crocs are everywhere else but here. Saw reports of crocs in previous years so we stick to the flagged area with stinger nets and lifeguards. Didn't swim out as far as I normally would at a beach but it was a very nice swim nonetheless. Lovely walk among the beach after!

Lovely, peaceful beach with room for everyone, spotless clean and no riff-raff. With four miles of it you can always find your perfect spot.

A perfect beach to stoll, walk, splash or just relax. It's busy but you never feel like you don't have your own space

Fantastic days of leisure, relaxing on the beach whilst the kids played in the waves. Great shakes and smoothies for the cafe just behind the beach.

We went during stinger season, but swam in the nets. The sand was beautiful and actually sparkled in the sunlight. Friendly lifeguards

Stayed for 8 days at the southern end of the beach. It was a matter crossing the street to get on the beach. It is popular at all times of the day. Most mornings I walked from one end to the other passing the parade of dog walkers. For variety I walked up the steps at the northern end to... More

Bit pricey on the beach loungers and umbrellas,if you wait till after 1pm you can get them cheaper.Good toilet facilities nearby and showers as you leave the beach.

If you haven't been here you haven't seen Port Douglas. The beach is perfect - clean sand, no shells or coral to step on, lifeguards on duty. Kid friendly with a gentle slope - you need to go a fair way in to get in deep. Perfect place to while away the hours and there's even a lookout right next... More
