Beach Nature / Park
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.

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.
