4 mile beach is probably 4 miles long and Sandy which is probably best attribute. The area that is supervised by lifeguards has loungers, sunshades on hire for $15 or 25 if you want cushions.

Water is warm; ocean is flat; sandy beach; shallow for a reasonable distance out; close to town. We took our 11 month old here, better in the afternoon when water warmer.

Stunning at dawn and at sunset - just be mindful of the crocodiles that frequent Mowbray River right down the end of the beach but well worth a walk - take your camera - and remember No swimming Nov - April Jellyfish Stinger season

This is a huge, wide palm lined sandy beach and just wonderful for walking along, as we did, fabulous scenery, and in September it wasn't busy, although the lifeguards were on duty just in case. One of the highlights of our stay in Port Douglas.
