Sun, water, plenty of plants, walking paths, slow cars and local feel, this is a great little area. from the hotels to a small house in the area, you don't have to walk far for brekkie, beach, wine or...

Palm Cove is a lovely spot and not too far from Cairns, Great places to eat and lots of nice accommodation. Beach is nice and has a netting to keep stingers out.

I was here because my trip to Mossman ended there and I took an overnight on the beach with other party people, it was very nice and sleep easy without trouble on this beautiful beach
