The ideal surreal conditions. The water temp of the ocean was fantastic for a refreshing swim or dip in the ocean.

Great beach, shallow water for miles out and only small waves so really a safe beach for kids, activities to hire and when ready just potter across the road to all the great restaurants. Really is a very picturesque esplanade and beach, nice island to gaze out at from the sand.

Warm clean water in a spectacular setting. It's a great workout to walk the length of the beach all the way to the Kewarra headland to the south. A beautiful stretch of beach in a friendly resort town. Classy eateries & shops. The best selection of bikinis, dresses & surfwear I've seen for a long time. A relaxed pace of life here for sure.

|Very clean, very beautiful, very safe. A beautiful village- like town which is understated and not glitzy.Great eateries and hotels/apartments are all above average. Nothing tacky here. Shops are not bad too. Try SHAK for quality clothing. Palm Cove is a wee gem.

Stunning beach. Perfect for the whole family with calm waters. No litter or seaweed. Beautiful morning walks followed by lunch at Deli ADrift, a bit of shopping then afternoon drinks at Far Horizons (Angsana) under the mass of palm trees. Amazing !!
