Nestled between the rainforest and the sea, Port Douglas is a mainland paradise. It is home to a world class marina, more than 60 cafes and restaurants, art galleries, boutiques, spectacular Four Mile Beach and world-famous sunsets over the Coral Sea.
Port Douglas is famous for attracting all types of tourists - from Hollywood stars to backpackers on a tight budget. That's because it's got something for everyone - fashion, food, fun, adventure, nature and more.
Head to the Sunday Markets to find the best art, craft, fashion, food and culture that Port Douglas has to offer.
Visit Port Douglas in May and you could find yourself surrounded by 20,000 celebrating life in the tropics at the annual 'Carnivale' festival. If sport is more your scene, sign up for Australia's longest running triathlon, the Coral Coast Triathlon. Enjoy a swim in the Coral Sea, cycle through the palm tree lined streets of Port Douglas and run along Four Mile Beach.
Port Douglas is also the gateway to two World Heritage-listed areas, the spectacular Daintree Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef. Our staff can help you explore this incredible stretch of Australian coast.
Join leisurely walks through the Daintree Forest, hop on a safari escape to Cape Tribulation, submerge yourself in the reef waters of the Coral Sea or take a dip in the crystal creeks of Mossman Gorge. Go snorkeling or scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef, hop aboard a fishing charter or helicopter tour, marvel at life below the ocean from your glass-bottomed boat or simply laze around on golden beaches.
At Mantra PortSea, we'll help you discover paradise.
