As the name suggests, this golden strip of sand stretches for roughly four miles along North Queensland’s tropical coastline.

The biscuit-coloured sands are wedged between sparkling blue waters and a tropical backdrop of palm trees, which separates the beach from the adjacent town of Port Douglas.

Unlike some of Australia’s better known beaches, such as Bondi and Surfers Paradise, this one’s not so tourist-focused, and as such there’s not a whole load of chain restaurants and shops close by. Perfect if you’re looking for an idyllic paradise spot, but not so much if you’re a fan of the crowds and the surf scene.

That said, you can still get stuck into some watersports - kite surfing’s a particular favourite in this part of Queensland, with Four Mile Beach considered to be one of the best spots for it in the state.
