I loved our week in Palm Cove, the weather in August was Warm (25 every day), real shorts and t-shirt weather.
Silvester Palms Apartments were fantastic, we had an excellent value two bedroom unit, which was spotless and spacious. Alan at the front desk was always helpful and accommodating, he even washed our car!! The pool was clear blue and hardly ever had anyone in it. The place was only a short walk straight to the esplanade and beach, where the restaurants and night life were great fun. The ice cream shop got a particularly good review every day!!
The beach was lovely, absolute picturesque views and palms, a fantastic wedding venue. Some days it could be a little windy and the sand got in your eyes, but that was where Silvester Palms, sheltered, warm position set back a little from the beach came into its own!!
Palm cove itself was a great spot for a short trip within FNQ, we managed a day on the Great Barrier Reef which was just sublime, as well as the excellent Sunday market at Port Douglas and dinner on the water in Cairns. Recommend hiring a car from the airport for this, but there are enough restaurants in Palm cove to last you a month without doubling up. Plus all places offer a transfers/public transport to and from Palm cove to the airport/reef/skyrail/Port douglas and other attractions daily.
Overall a great midwinter getaway, nothing like getting away from cold old Melbourne for a while..
