Clean and pristine. Beautiful beach to walk along. You can walk along the pathways in the shade or by the waves,

“By far the best beach I have ever been too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

As a beach lover having visited beach's all over the planet Palm Cove is by far my favourite! Located on the gorgeous Coral Sea it never ceases to amaze me as too its many characters... it can be a magnificent still blue lake one day and a swollen mass of foaming waves the next, gorgeous pink late in the day reflecting the sunsets from the clouds behind to a glistening glass like morning display as the sun rises silhouetting Double Island. The sand is clean and white, unlike many of the dirty Asian resort beaches and with the palm tree fringe along its full length giving it that unique tropical beach feeling. As for the stingers and crocs... during stinger season swim in the nets and in the 25 years I have been visiting Palm Cove I have heard of only one croc sighting about 10 years ago. It is simply the most beautiful beach ever!

“While we were there”

Surf Life Guards on duty every day, even through winter. Plus, the sea temperature was a comfortable 23C
