What an amazing looking beach! Palm Trees are amazing too......but there are warning signs about Crocodiles and Jelly Fish! No one was on the beach!

This truly is one of the more stunningly beautiful places on Earth I've been. The only reason I rated it 4 stars rather than 5 is that you could only swim in the tiny little netted area. Of course, this isn't their fault. The nets were there to save us all from deadly stinger jellyfish, which I highly appreciated, but... More

A very beautiful place to enjoy walk by the ocean and have lunch. We stayed in Trinity Beach (Dec 2014), but discovered that Palm Cove Beach may become our base next time. Many good hotels around.

Sadly you can only swim in the netted area, around summer due to the Jellyfish. But you can enjoy walks along the beach and fish from the pier.

Palm Cove is like no other place I know in Australia. It's sophisticated, its gorgeous, and its right beside all these great restaurants. During the day we lay on the beach and at night we stroll along the esplanade deciding on where to eat. Heaps of choice.

Such a magic beach to walk very early or late in the day when the crowds have gone. Look back to Palm Cove and all you see are palm trees. A thrill of fear may pass through you when you see the beware of crocodile signs. Do take heed as they are there! And, of course, there are stingers in... More

During our fortnight stay, the water was calm and there were no storms. There was a protected area cordoned off and patrolled as there were stingers in the water.
