Palm Cove - Cairns Beaches

Palm Cove (with a small population of approximately 1,993) combines the charm of a quaint Seaside Village and Resort Style luxuries with the Serene Beauty of its Palm Fringed Golden Sandy Beaches with extended views over the clear blue waters of "The Great Barrier Reef" to "Green Island" and "Double Islands". Palm Cove won the coveted "Australian Cleanest Beach" in 2002.

A short stroll along Palm Cove takes you past a myriad of Fine Dining experiences from the cosy atmosphere of Beach-Front Bars and Cafes to the indulgence of Resort style restaurants.

If you fancy feeding yourself, then drop a line out onto the Palm Cove jetty or anywhere along the beach - a popular spot with anglers. The jetty is also where Reef Trip Operators provide daily departures to 'The Great Barrier Reef" and "Islands".

If it's action you crave, then take to the water with the selection of water-sports available, or enjoy a guided bushwalk. For the golf enthusiasts play a round of golf on a resort golf course.

Palm Cove has a popular swimming beach with enough space to relax in solitude or with friends and family (the beach has a stinger resistant enclosure and life-savers present).

If the heat gets too much grab a refreshment from the ice cream stand right across from the beach or meander through the Palm Cove village on a shopping excursion.

A variety of Accommodation styles are situated at Palm Cove with the tree lined esplanade home to Luxury Resorts, Villas and Boutique Apartments. Palm Cove makes the perfect holiday destination boasting a tropical atmosphere, solitude and everyday conveniences available seven days a week.
