“Great beach if you can avoid the stingers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

A long beautiful, tropical beach with clean sand and an netted-off area of sea to protect swimmers from the seasonal "stingers' or jelly fish. As with most Aussie public beaches there are nearby changing rooms with showers and toilets. And just across the road are restaurants, with even one open to the public at the local surf and life saving club.

“Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Great walk and changed every day. With the beach and water so lovely it was a pity we were there during the stringer season and so unable to take full advantage

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Was looking forward to walking along this beach on our trip to Port Douglas. The beach was covered in debris, logs and seaweed. Not sure if we had just visited after a storm but was unable to walk along without a trip hazard. Nothing like Photos I had previously seen.

“Just Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Travel in January - stinger season. Still felt safe they net the beach.
Nothing better than getting up early and going for a walk along the beach as the sun is rising. Can't really think of a negative

“Heaven on Earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

This pristine beach is truly heaven on earth. There is plenty of room to spread out a towel and relax for the day, and you can walk for miles and miles soaking up the natural beauty all around you. The stinger nets were much appreciated since we visited in the heart of stinger season, and the water is warm but still refreshing. This is the perfect place to watch a gorgeous Queensland sunrise.
