Four Mile Beach
Beach as far as the eye can see, Four Mile Beach – The best beach in Port Douglas
Four miles of picturesque palm trees line the stretch of golden sand and turquoise ocean that is Port Douglas’ and arguably Australia’s most famous beach.
Beginning at the northern headland and only a short five minute walk from Port Douglas Village, Four Mile Beach curves down towards Alexandra Reefs and off into the distance as far as the eye can see. A pleasant stroll along the sand is the best way to appreciate the true beauty of the place, with uninterrupted views of the surrounding national parks and tropical coastline without a hint of development in site.
Whether you’re snorkelling around the rocky headlands, grabbing a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant, watching the sailboats go by, marvelling at the view atop Trinity Bay Lookout or simply catching some sun on the sand, Four Mile Beach is a must-do for any traveler visiting Port Douglas.
With the ocean on one side and rainforest on the other, this really is tropical paradise. The best part is that Four Mile Beach is only walking distance from Reef Resort Port Douglas – By Rydges.
