Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a very wide, pristine beach that seems to be overlooked by many travelers. Very easy access.

Great spot to stop for lunch or a ice cream and just take in the ocean views. Be sure to visit the little cafe. And walk along the beach to explore is a must.

One of the nicer beaches in the area, great views north and south, up to the local hills, looking down to the mouth of Cooper Creek.

What a wonderful area we have in the Daintree. Spectacular drive on the way up and then to stop for a break at Thornton Beach is a real treat. Tide was out with 200 metres of open beach to the ocean. Quiet and free of any city stress what a terrific place to stop. Wonderful scenery like nowhere else.

This was a quick stop on the way to Cape Tribulation just to see where the beach really does meet the rainforest. Our guide told us not to go near the water, reciting a story of 2 ladies who went for a late night swim & had a crocodile grab & kill one of them just a few years ago.
Still, lots of lovely photos to be taken.

Pristine beach easily reached from the carpark.
Not sure about swimming! There are definitely crocodiles so caution when you are walking!
