About
For a long while Hi Tide Cafe, Bar, Restaurant has been a local's secret, and no wonder because this is as close to a beachfront hideaway as it gets in the middle of Port Douglas. Indeed, if you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of Macrossan Street and enjoy a home style meal or one of our nightly specials, a cocktail or cool beer with the soft sea breeze the tide will bring you here. Nestled oceanside in the Peninsula Boutique Hotel. Hi Tide looks directly out onto 4 Mile Beach and the Coral Sea. It's cool without being over designed, warm and welcoming without sacrificing a certain sophistication and, well, they have the most amazing cocktail selection.

This restaurant overlooks the beach rather than the harbour and is the only restaurant at this quiet end of Macrossan Street. The service was friendly and attentive. The sound of the waves on the beach could be heard as it was so quiet and away...More

Casual, comfortable attire is what is required in the tropics and is best in Port Douglas. Whatever you are comfortable in!
