Palm Cove and Port Douglas, Queensland

Best Beaches: Palm Cove, Four Mile Beach

Home to some of Australia's best resorts and spas, Palm Cove is all about enjoying a combined his-and-hers body treatment before heading across the road to wander along a paperbark and coconut tree-lined beach. And with world-class resorts and spas comes gourmet dining – you could easily spend a week in Palm Cove sampling the cuisine at some of the country's best regional restaurants.

Less than an hour north of Palm Cove is Port Douglas, indisputably one of the world’s sexiest seaside villages. With a backdrop of green forested mountains and a main street of cafés, restaurants, boutique stores and bars, Port Douglas is one of those beach towns you just have to visit. From the gorgeous young things on Four Mile Beach (the town’s sandy hotspot) to the honeymooners lingering over romantic dinners, the region has an energy you'd hardly expect from a former fishermen’s retreat.
