Title : About Palm Cove

Winner of an Australian 2010 Gourmet Traveller Award, Palm Cove is the spa and wedding capital of Australia. Just 30 minutes north of Cairns, Palm Cove is our premier beach.


The pristine beach of Palm Cove is lined with palms and plenty of shade for beach goers to have a break from the far north’s constant sunshine. Children’s playgrounds, barbeques, a stinger net (netted swimming area for ultimate safety from jelly fish), life savers, volley ball nets, and surf skis break up the walk from one end of the beach to the other. This is a beach of activity and enjoyment, a place favoured by locals (great fishing spot) and revisited by those who holiday there.


Opposite the beach front, Palm Cove accommodation and boutique shops of every sort to suit every budget awaits to thrill local, national and international visitors alike. From holiday houses, holiday apartments, through to five star resorts, Palm Cove accommodation has the lot. All Palm Cove accommodation is within walking distance of the beach and well suited to our tropical climate and style of living.


Award winning native and tropical gardens amass the promenade and friendly northerners stop to chat with visitors and share information about flora and fauna. Local wildlife is prolific (yet VERY safe) and lizards, tree frogs, butterflies, large numbers of native birds (Rainbow Lorikeets, cheeky Kookaburras, Cockatoos, Doves, Sunbirds, Finches) make Palm Cove their home.


If rest and relaxation is on order then Palm Cove is your one stop shop. Magical from sun up to sun down, you can spa, eco unwind, work out (huge gyms in some of the resorts) or walk along the sand and rocks to connecting beaches.


Wake to the crash of waves on the long, pristine Palm Cove beach and the sounds of tropical birds busily gathering fruits and seeds from native trees and shrubs. Palm Cove is also the most likely beach to spot a local-on-a-mini-holiday but you’ll be hard pressed to pick them from tourists as everyone just blends in together at the most beautiful and active beach Cairns has to offer.


Book your Palm Cove apartment with the locals to get the inside scoop on all there is to do and see at Palm Cove.

Relax, take in as many massages as you can get and share your dreams in the tranquil surroundings and prepare your baby for the pleasure that life can offer. Many young families can even be seen having baby naming ceremonies beneath the palms on Palm Cove beach. This really is a place that caters from pre birth to old age.


  1. Fish off the Palm Cove Jetty. Fishing equipment and bait can be hired and the variety of seasoned fishers along the jetty will help you bait up, pull in and gut the fish you are going to catch. Go back to your Palm Cove Apartment and savour your fresh catch of the day.
