Things to do at Four Mile Beach
Four Mile Beach is one of Port Douglas’s most stunning attractions, a glorious stretch of palm-lined beach that could easily take the crown as Australia’s most pristine. Funnily enough, Four Mile Beach isn’t actually four miles long – it’s four kilometres long – it was just named after a local family that happened to have the name “Fourmile”!
But enough with the trivia, you’re here to find out what’s so good about this beach and why you’re going to have an unforgettable time when you get there.
So, without further procrastination, here are some awesome activities to do at Four Mile Beach.
It’s a water sports paradise!
A beach as beautiful as Four Mile should and most certainly does play host to a huge range of water sports that allow you to get an incredible glimpse of the beach and sea life. Four Mile Beach is nestled in between the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef, so you know it’s an awe-inspiring spot for standup paddleboarding in the morning and kite surfing in the afternoon!
You may even spot some of the Reef’s most famous inhabitants as you glide across the water, think dolphins, sea turtles, manta rays and all kinds of vibrant fish species.
Segway across the sand
Want to experience the whole expanse of this unbelievable four kilometre beach but just don’t feel like walking? Well, why not hop aboard the hippest way to see Port Douglas by joining a segway tour? Tours take you across beautiful rainforest trails, across the sandy beach and past tranquil creeks.
Take in the gorgeous sunrises
Four Mile Beach is home to some of Australia’s most amazing sunrises (and sunsets, for that matter!). There is no better time of day to see the beach in all its tropical splendour than in the morning, with the wondrous eastern sunrise showering the beach in spectacular red, orange and yellow hues. The beach is situated at a point, making it perfect for catching the stunning rays and idyllic beauty they create.
Enjoy world class seafood by the sea
After a day’s adventuring, you’re probably going to want to have a bite to eat. Four Mile Beach really has you covered, with delectable seafood and BBQ facilities available along the beachfront. Enjoy a delicious meal while taking in the amazing sunset – it’s the perfect way to cap off your unforgettable day at Four Mile Beach!
