Relax under a coconut palm, paddle around a Great Barrier Reef island, enjoy a spa treatment or delight in a fusion of tropical delicacies. It is all part of life at Palm Cove, an intimate slice of paradise boasting a plethora of holiday experiences.
With its long sandy beach lapped by the Coral Sea and a backdrop of rainforest-clad mountains, Palm Cove offers ultimate tropical serenity in a postcard setting. It's the perfect place to relax with a book while enjoying the sun or to discover summer fashions after an early morning dip in the ocean.
Dangle your legs over the jetty while the locals hook a fish or stroll along the shady tree-lined paths to experience the welcoming village atmosphere which earned Palm Cove the title of Queensland's Friendliest Beach.
This sophisticated beachside hub boasts award-winning restaurants, peaceful day spas and exceptional resorts along its picturesque esplanade where ancient melaleucas define the relaxing atmosphere. The sheer variety of dining experiences at Palm Cove means your palate can take a trip around the world, discover tropical produce at its best or reminisce with fish and chips by the sea.
Accommodation options are just as varied whether you prefer the luxury of a resort, the convenience of an apartment or want to pitch your tent at the caravan park right on the beach. Palm Cove is a 30 minute drive north of Cairns.
