I rate this Northern Beach of Cairns
5 Stars for Convenience to Carpark esplanade parking (there is enough if not a short stroll from a side street), Bus Station for public transport close by, Food cafes, Sports club with meals and entertainment, Safety with Netting for Jellyfish and relatively safe from Crocs and Patrolled by Life Guards and Night fog lamp that lights up part of the beach at night, Amenities Toilets, showers provided on both the ends of Trinity Beach. Views from the lookout is great. The shade from the Palm trees is great during the late midday sun and the pathways along the Esplanade are constructed well and not gravel underfoot as apposed to Palm Cove, Trinity Beach has more Palm Trees and better pathways than Palm Cove. Trinity Beach and Palm Cove can be easily distinguished from Palm cove is the beach that allows access to the beach by road via a ring road which cars can exit without congestion, but the esplanade can be quite narrow and Trinity Beach is a one entry road beach with a dead end roads at either end of the esplanade with wider esplanade and turn around traffic. Also Trinity Beach is further away from the Highway than Palm Cove but is closer to Cairns. Trinity Beach is a bit Rougher in the water and Palm Cove I found a bit calmer, Palm Cove has the Jetty and access to Double Island, Trinity beach has more Water Toys and water play equipment hire services than Palm cove. Trinity Beach has No Accor Hotels compared to Palm cove. The only problem I found was that The Esplanade at Trinity and it could of happen on Palm Cove on a Sunday was a showcase of a parade of noisy V8 cars with revving engines, screeching tyres destroying the mood for 10 minutes. Great Fish n chips at the Corner cafe of the Esplanade and Trinity beach road it was reasonable price. The sports club can be quite expensive had a glance at the menu and not as popular as the Corner café, there are other cafes (Indian, Italian) but not as popular as the Corner Café.
