Double Island Point in Queensland, Australia, is an infinity beach at the state that occupies the north-east of the island continent, about 230 kilometers north of Brisbane. The cape took its name by the great explorer James Cook who was the first European who explored the place on 18 May 1770.

There is free access to a long stretch of pristine sand that juts out into the Coral Sea and a lighthouse which is now powered by solar energy. There is no road, only a few paths, so here you can get only on foot or with a 4×4, perhaps starting from Rainbow Beach, the resort from which these photographs were taken.

There are so many activities you can attend here like whale watching and dolphins (between July and November), the Wolf Rockwhich is a formation of four volcanic pinnacles a short distance from here. This place is considered by many one of the top ten dive sites in Australia and is also great for surfing, swimming and of course to make the glider.
