The atmosphere was calm and relaxing like always with nice sunset. The stinger net area is a nice spot to swim and I like the new surf club were you can grab a drink and dinner at reasonable prices.

The swimming enclosure was well manned by a lifesavers & the enclosure made it feel safe to swim during "stinger season". The beach is just beautiful.

Always enjoy returning to Palm Cove beach. It has a great setting and is so quiet. Water is lovely and warm. It's a real oasis.

We've stayed in Palm Cove twice now, we just love this colourful little village. Wonderful clean beach, it's a lovely place to go day or night. We loved time on the jetty in the evening, and it never gets cold! Lots of people fishing from the jetty at night, and lots just walking around enjoying the tropics as well. A... More

A beautiful, quiet, peaceful cove that never seemed to have too many people around. The ideal place to sit and watch the world go by, just watching the waves - perfect!

Never too busy, great location to hire kayaks and catamarans to tour the local area. Great for the morning stroll, seems to be very secluded.

It is definitely worth a visit. We stopped in here on our way from Cairns to Port Douglas. We enjoyed a stroll along the Boardwalk and had morning tea at a cafe on the esplanade. We thought the view so pretty that we came back another day and had lunch here. Most of the eateries are quite expensive but it... More

We have been to the Trinity Beach Tavern on several occasions, and cant fault the food at the bistro. They have a variety of meal types to suit all palates and at a reasonable price. The service offered by the staff is always very good.

We were lucky enough to witness the full moon over the beach - It was stunning. The stinger enclosure was great and fully patrolled. The water was gloriously warm and calm. There was no litter. The only downer was not being able to swim the entire beach, but that goes hand in hand with North QLD at that time of... More
