Palm Cove has one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. The palm fringed beach is clean with clear azure water and soft white sand. Although Palm Cove is home to the box jellyfish and you cannot really swim here, there is an enclosure with lifeguards where you can enjoy a dip. The view is stunning, especially at sunset. Definitely worth a visit.

Gorgeous beach spot to stay or a day trip. Pinky coloured sand, netted swimming enclosure. Uncrowded even on a long weekend.

Firstly people who are saying Australian beaches are the best clearly haven't been to Europe. With their clean waters and cultured settings in my view they are better than any Australian beach. Palm Cive is long and is nice,but that's it, it's just 'Nice'. Water is filthy.

Seriously the sand is pristine and white with shells that move of their own accord (pillies!) It's a picturesque, idyllic beach but the damn stingers ruin it most times of the year so you can't enjoy the warm water unless you swim in the net - even then, sometimes they get in. But the lifeguards on duty have it all under control. Stay between the flags! The water is so warm you will feel like you're in a spa with waves!

I love this beach. It's the best in Cairns. Great for fishing off the jetty, swimming in the stinger enclosure or a long walk on the beach. BBQs are free and being local, we go there often for a picnic or a BBQ.
