Tall coconut palms line the edge of Four Mile Beach at Port Douglas in far north Queensland. The beach begins at the base of Island Point and heads south for four miles to the mouth of the Mowbray River. Although resorts and residential blocks line the beach front, there are no high rises and the view to the rainforest clad mountains is unspoiled. In mid-winter, the beach is popular with both walkers and windsurfers, and a few hardy souls even brave the cool water for a swim.
