The flat sandy part of Fourmile Beach is only part of the Port Douglas Coastal Walk. There is more to it than that. There are interperative signs at various stages along the beach and cliff that have a map and show you where to go next. See photos. There is a sign near the beach end of Macrossan Street at Jalun Park and another at the end of Mowbray Street on the beach near the Surf Club. There are 15 signs in all and the walk is 4.4 kms long. The walk also takes you past some impressive architecture of the rich and famous with stunning beach and water views, out to the point and then along Dickson's Inlet near St Mary's-by-the-sea. The walk was designed and put there by the Low Isles Preservation Society years ago. The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority are going to replace the old signs and put up new signs very soon.
Incidentally the beach was named after the Fourmile family a long time ago and it is no where near 4 miles long. The correct spelling for the beach is one word - Fourmile.
