Spice is absolute beachfront. Oak Beach is 1.5km of postcard-perfect white sand, coconut palms and gently lapping waves. The fishing is truly special (off the beach and offshore). And the walks to the northern end of the beach are a beachcomber’s delight. And yet, most days, you’ll only see a handful of people at most. You’re more likely to see dolphins and turtles. Are you sure you need to go anywhere else?
Fine restaurants, luxury shopping, golf courses, everyday essentials, bars and nightclubs are 10 minutes drive away in the sophisticated yet casual resort village of Port Douglas.
20 minutes in the other direction is exclusive Palm Cove with a bevy of fine dining options.
Port Douglas is the closest port to the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef with boats departing daily for scuba diving, snorkeling or fishing.
Oak Beach is situated in a World Heritage listed rainforest and close to idyllic rainforest tours of the Mossman Gorge, Daintree Forest and Cape Tribulation.
The nearby Atherton Tablelands, rated by National Geographic as the ‘healthiest climate in the world’ makes a great half-day or full day excursion of food and wine trails, wildlife watching and walks.
Visitors and locals alike, flock to Port Douglas’s famous Sunday Markets for locally produced organic food and bohemian fashions and homewares.
And that’s just the beginning…
