Four Mile Beach, Port Douglas

4.4
A favorite local getaway at dusk and dawn, Four Mile Beach features a long stretch of golden sand gently lapped by clear water and lined with swaying palms. Feel the touch of a cool breeze while strolling with the locals along the beach that curves softly at its ends. Tourists mostly spend their time swimming, tanning, or dozing off under the endless row of palm trees. The unspoiled beach also offers plenty of entertainment for water-sports enthusiasts, such as kitesurfing, stand-up paddling, kayaking, and parasailing. Four Mile Beach is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Port Douglas Edition.

  • Not a lot to say really, Its a long beach with lots of people walking on it. At low tide its quite easy to walk on as the sand is quite hard. Good place for jogging if thats your thing.  more »
  • One of the most beautiful sunrises to capture on camera. Though make sure to not just sit on the many beach side chairs - they are not free to sit on. Just a tip  more »

  • Amazing beach to wander along at low tide and walk on the sand bars and explore and find star fish and other small critters and shells
  • If you are expecting crystal blue clear waters, think again. Unfortunately due to the SE trade winds, silt from the reef dislodges creating a very murky brownish green colour to the water. This is the case for the coastline from Cairns to Port Douglas. The sand on 4 mile beach is fine and white, lovely to walk along. So yep - if you're loving your beach walks then - this is a great beach for that. So to be clear ....the sea water is brown. Sorry to say, but rather tell it like it is.
