“Great place to relax and enjoy”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

A fantastic place to just relax and enjoy the local atmosphere, as well as all the local restaurants, cafes and everything else in between. All accommodation is just a brief walk to the beach.
Would definitely recommend staying in Palm Cove when visiting Cairns

“Beach area”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Brilliant! It was almost on the doorstep - not far - just a walk away and wonderful. The beach was almost like a private getaway. Beware though of stinger season - check out when this is before going to the beach.

“Beautiful.. And flags to swim between... Perfect”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Some nice little waves when we were there yesterday! Warm water, flags and surf life savers to keep you safe... And a bunch of cafés and pubs to have lunch or a coffee.... Nice :)

“Small and sweet”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Not crowded, nice sand, gentle waves.
Didn't like the sand flies! Bites all over our legs. You WILL need insect repellent.

“A beautiful boulevarde”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

We liked the winding avenue showing off the best of the beach, restaurants and people.
Had a meal at the Asian which was very good with a good wine list.
