Palm Cove has a quaintness of an Island resort with the convenience of being on the mainland. The beach has beautiful clean sand fringed by an assortment of shade trees that encourange you to sit and enjoy the ocean and mountain views. The Jetty is a hive of activity for those who want to catch their own reef fish. Beach... More

Absolutely stunning views this morning. A yacht out to sea in calm water. Channel nine were doing brekky on the beach which was exciting. Masses of palm trees. Stinger nets are in place for Summer swimming safety then the entire ocean is perfectly fine for the rest of the year .The recent addition of a meandering footpath is a bonus.... More

Nice beach but nothing extraordinary. Also be aware of stingers and jelly fish which limits swimming to small designated areas at best.

Plam Cove has a very different feel to Trinity Beach. shops are very expensive and aimed at beach wear. The view to the beach is minimal due to the large number of trees along the pathway. Not a place we would ever stay, nice for a stroll and maybe iced coffee.

Unfortunately the weather wasn't the best, therefore the sea was quite rough and dirty. Great how you can walk a good distance on the beach though.

Although it's a nice beach to walk on in the summer months you can only swim in the stinger proof area. Better off swimming in your hotel pool. Seems a waste such a long stretch of beach and only a small area you can use. Of course come outside this season and enjoy all it has as a great beach... More

Exceptionally clean beach. Perfect for relaxing morning & evening strolls. Uncrowded this time of year, perfectly calm & not a cloud in the sky. Swimming enclosure or pools best for a dip until Easter. Beautiful, serene, just heaven..

I could honestly say I could sit at this beach all day and stare into the water. Lovely and a must while at Palm Cove.

This beautiful beach is popular as it offers a lot to do. Laze under the Palm trees, swim in the patrolled beach within the safety nets, hire a canoe or boat - thus beach has It all. BBQ's and picnic areas, safe children's playgrounds or go for a walk on the pier. We saw fisherman pull up small sharks and... More
