Where I stayed
After a great sleep in our new hotel in Port Douglas, Peppers Beach Club, (with Jacuzzi on the balcony – whoopee!) we went out to explore the area. It was incredibly hot but we immediately fell in love with Port Douglas as it was so upmarket with a pretty marina, great shops and restaurants and a beautiful beach, although the signs for 'Beware of Crocodiles' and ‘Stingers’ (which can be fatal) rather put us off the beach for good!
We spent the afternoon relaxing by the wonderful hotel swimming pool, which was set up like a beach, with the first part of the pool sloping down in sand – heaven! And gazebos to relax in. We then had a wonderful fish meal at the Inlet restaurant watching the sunset – doesn’t get better than this!
