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.

  • We were up before the Sun to do the Sunrise Kayak Turtle Tour. Oh wow, this was an amazing experience. The waters were calm and the weather so perfect. Highly recommend doing this, Andy was our guide, and with little experience at kayaking before, we felt safe. I took these photos with my phone, Which I had in the pocket of the life vest, so it was easy to get to.
  • It's a nice place for holiday. Accommodations were just a few steps across the street. Lot of trees on the street side that gives shade from scorching sun. Cool breeze from the shore. We're unlucky though when we were there as swimming spot with net were breached by stingers! We end up shooting photos and videos of the stunning beauty of the beach line.
