Palm Cove Beach

Updated: 22-Sep-2014

Palm Cove is a 25-minute drive north of Cairns and has developed into an exclusive resort and Spa destination with a range of Award Winning local Day Spas.  This beautiful destination has attracted passionate restauranters and Palm Cove restaurants have won Gourmet Traveller magazine awards and many of the restaurants face the beach.  Absolutely perfect for diniing at any time.  Fashion boutiques and galleries also run along the beachfront. 

This tropical seaside village has an excellent new surf lifesaver club on the beach with a fabulous family friendly restaurant. 

Palm Cove Beach is the North's most popular wedding beach with many weddings taking place every weekend.  Angsana has a beachfront chapel at the Southern end of the beach.  If you would like to arrange your wedding on this beach there are four zones that can be booked through the Cairns Regional Council for a very small fee. 

There is a very popular jetty ideal for local fishermen who regularly catch mackerel, Giant Trevally or "G.Ts" and shark.  Next door to the Palm Cove Watersports near the jetty is a Food Van.  The chap here rents out fishing equipment if you feel like throwing in a line. 

Palm Cove Watersports offers sunrise and morning kayaking tours.  The morning tour is a longer tour and circumnavigates Double Island and Scouts Hat.  Depending on conditions there is also sometimes an afternoon tour. 

The beach is within a very long cove that stretches all the way to Kewarra Beach making it perfect for long walks.

Joggers, walkers and cyclists love the tropical lifestyle and beautiful scenery. 

In 2014 the Iron Man Cairns started at Palm Cove Beach.  This is a fabulous location for a large event with the beach providing a natural theatre to watch the action. 

hady palm trees line the beach and clusters of beautiful Melaleuca trees shelter the resorts.  Beach shacks, restaurants and 5 star resorts line the beachfront. There is a wide range of accommodation available here...
