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.

  • Beautiful beach and plenty of nice spots to have a picnic. Generally not too crowded when I have been there. Nice beach to take a swim though I did get stung by a jelly one year. Many small shops and restaurants across from the beach front. Nice atmosphere.
  • Beautiful place. Beautifully kept shady beachside walkway with water stations seats and BBQ picnic spots along the way. Restaurants hotels and shops across the road. The local council should be proud of their efforts to make this a unique and magnificent place to holiday. Deserving of at least 6 stars.
