Palm Cove Beach, Palm Cove

(4.4/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Palm Cove Beach is noted for its long stretch of white sand lined by tall palm trees. Located in a small village once used as a resting stop by the famous Captain Cook, this pristine beach is a major tourist attraction due to its proximity to the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree National Park. lifeguards patrol year-round and can direct you to safe swimming spots along the coast.  Make sure to stop by the Palm Cove jetty, one of the region's most popular fishing spots, where anglers regularly catch species such as mackerel, giant trevally, and shark. Nearby are dozens of shops, restaurants, cafes, ice cream parlors, and pubs, open conveniently late into the night. Put Palm Cove Beach and other Palm Cove attractions into our Palm Cove travel itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • A beautiful beach in North Queensland close to cairns city ,close to a lot of hotels and restaurants with a view of the beach .  more »
  • Great place to stay. So much to do and close to everything. One of the great places to visit. Would love to live here  more »
  • From Cairns can be reached in one hour by bus. Went to Palm Cove Cairns beaches not so. Less people so carefree. So have a lot of cafes along the sea overlooking the sea in beer is best.
