Palm Cove

4.5
Beaches · Spas · Stand-Up Paddleboarding
A small community of about 1,200 people, Palm Cove sits beside the clear blue waters of the South Pacific. Beach life predominates, with an atmosphere of calm, laid-back enjoyment pervading the town and its immediate surrounds. First believed to have been settled by Aboriginals around 60,000 years ago, Palm Grove grew significantly in size in the second half of the 20th century. With our custom trip planner, Australia vacations can be built around trips to Palm Cove and other destinations in Australia.

Where to stay in Palm Cove

Palm Cove might be a small resort town, but there's no lack of places to stay. Available accommodations match the town's reputation as one of Queensland's most exclusive resorts. While budget options can be hard to find, the town features a number of luxurious hotels, villas, apartments, and guesthouses. Quite a few are in immediate proximity to the beach and feature amazing sea views, while others put you just minutes away from the coast. For a more affordable vacation at Palm Cove, plan your visit outside the peak season, when all these accommodations are available at reduced prices.
