Not really much to say about this. It is a beach with a small roped off area for swimming. Not particularly scenic. Much prettier beaches up the coast - though admittedly you can't swim at most of them!

Four Mile Beach was a bitter disappointment. The beach is full of debris from the trees and the ocean and at high tide there is literally no section of the beach on which to sit or walk without having to navigate this mass of seaweed, leaves and other fallen vegetation. Mid April is apparently still stinger season and the only... More

Sadly we were not impressed by the beach. The whole beach was covered in seaweed, which apparently the council wont clean up as they want it to degrade and go back in to the sand. I dont understand why they cannot just pick the seaweed up and use it as compost on the surrounding gardens. Even charge people for it... More

Port Douglas has the Four Mile BEACH. Beautiful for a swim in the safety of the stinger nets on the beach. It is not actually four miles long but was named after a local pioneering family called Fourmile. Wonderful for walking up and down and a lovely trail up the far end of the hill at the end of the...

Beautiful views, lovely clean sand. Beware the stingers and crocs! But there was a protected area to dip in the water (with lifeguards).

Where the rainforest crashes into the ocean - spectacular! The water is tropical warm and safe to swim with nets - great for kids

Nice beach, just wish we could of swam but too afraid. A nice place for a walk in the mornings before the heat and humidity.

One of the most beautiful beaches in Queensland . Pity you can't swim all year round but those bloody jellyfish can kill you ! Coconut palms everywhere, beautiful sand and lots of tanned bodies . Take your sun screen as the sun can be relentless. The beach is so long, 4 miles or so ...lol , that most of the... More

This beach is a great place to see incredible sunrises. But there are crocodile warning signs which means no swimming. There is a net up for the box jellyfish it's the only place swimming is recommended. It's really a beautiful spot.
