“Lovely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Love the beach at Palm Cove! Lots of shady trees up the back if you need to escape the direct sun. Patrolled, Lovely walks from the pier right down to the end of town & beyond, Great views of the beach from your balcony if you stay waterfront.

“Beautiful Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

The view is great, what I liked was that the beach was patrolled, so very safe. Great walks along the beach, morning and night. Loved it.

“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

After five days in Port Douglas, we by chance came here for five more nights and loved it! Love that the beach has all the restaurants and hotels across from it. The restaurants are world class. The gum trees and palm trees are amazing. I'd definitely come here again. Great swimming in their winter as its warm and no jelly fish.

“Lovely beach, but swim in between the flags”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

This is a wild part of the world. And I have seen ppl drown in calmer beaches. There are jet skis for hire and canoes. But always read the life savers black board. The walk alongside the beach is probably one of the best promenade walks in the world. It is so beautiful and there is a divine meandering path that wanders through palm trees the whole length of the esplanade. We do it every night after dinner and unusual birds can be seen with maybe the odd crocodile further down so stay alert.
