Think pampering sessions, cocktails, sunsets, beach strolls, boozey lunches and quality time with your gal pals. What more could you need!?
Are you limited on time? Here is our guide on how to have the ultimate girls day out in Port Douglas without missing a thing.
Start your day off on the right foot with a relaxing stroll along the iconic Four Mile Beach and watch the sun rise over a glorious new day in the tropics. Are you a fan of yoga? The coconut palm lined beach is the perfect place to salute the sun and find your inner Zen. Classes are held from 8am daily.
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we tend to agree! For a wholesome breakfast and tasty coffee, we can’t go past the ‘Little Larder’ on Macrossan St. This funky café serves up modern breakfast cuisine and your classic favourites with a twist.
Weather you’re a self-confessed shopaholic or not too phased about it, we can guarantee there is something for everyone on Macrossan – the high street of Port Douglas. Wander up and down the street and browse through the eclectic mix of goods available from handmade items to clothing, jewellery to shoes, coffee to chocolate, souvenirs to art and everything in between.
TIP: Don’t miss the well known Port Douglas markets on every Sunday.
Immerse your Senses
Holidays and spa treatments often come hand in hand, especially on a girls getaway. Relax, recharge and revitalize with an amazing treatment at one of the many Day Spa’s in Port Douglas. Our top picks are ‘Hibiscus Spa’, located across the road from Cayman Villas, and the ‘Day Spa at Peppers Beach Club’, just a few minutes stroll from the property.
After all that shopping and pampering you are going to be ready for a delicious lunch (and thirsty for some holiday cocktails!). When in a beautiful seaside town like Port Douglas it would be criminal to pass up a on a delectable seafood spread. Head down to ‘On the Inlet’, a favourite amongst the locals, and enjoy the turquoise waters of the Dickson Inlet whilst catching up with your girlfriends. We recommend sharing the seafood platter and a cheeky bottle of wine from their impressive list.
What is the best part of being on holiday? Doing absolutely nothing. Spend the afternoon lazing by the infinity pool at Cayman Villas and soaking up some tropical sunshine.
