“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

miles of unspoilt beach with hardly a person in sight at times. Stingers and crocs really not a problem as long as you stay with the lifesavers

“Tropical Delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Breathtakingly beautiful palm fringed beach. In October on still days, the water is aqua blue. You can see the mountains in the distance around tropical curved palm fringed beaches with lovely restaurant & cafes hidden behind the trees.

“Great little park on the beach for the kids to play”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

There is a great little park on Palm Cove beach. It was fantastic for r 3 & 6 year olds to have a play while we enjoyed watching the beach and waves and them!

We walked from our resort sea temple down to the jetty and back to the park. It was a good motivator to keep them going. The path along the beach front is natural ie not concrete. Therefore when the kids were trying to ride their scooters it was a bit challenging in certain spots.

Lovely clean beach. Stinger season is November to May. The surf life savers said they put nets put during these months.
