As you approach the jungle wilderness of the Daintree there is time for a stop at Newell Beach, a sleepy coastal village. Boasting views of the famous Port Douglas headland to the south and across to Low Isles and the lighthouse, the pristine 2.5km beach is met by estuaries at each end. For boaties, there is a boat ramp providing easy access to nearby estuaries and to the nearby Daintree River and Snapper Island. The area is teaming with good eating fish, but remember to be croc wise in these areas. There is a local caravan park, convenience store and also beachside holiday houses for longer stays.
