We loved Palm Cove. The beach was beautiful with warm clean water. We found ourselves driving up from Cairns City (approx 25 mins north) almost everyday.

The best part is also the great range of restaurants and cafes on the esplanade. My favourites were Vivo Bar & Grill, The French Corner and Chill Cafe.

The food is reasonably priced and almost all the restaurants have an amazing beach view.

It is also nice to walk along the Esplanade to walk off all the yummy food.

A fantastic beach with a great pier. Here you can go swimming on the shore, fish on the pier, or hike on the rocks close to the shore. You have a great view of the islands or the forest behind you. A must stop. P.S. If you go about 50 yards from the pier on the shore where the wave break you will find millions of Australian sand dollars. A nice treat.

We were actually staying in Cairns and heard that we should head out to Palm Cove Beach for the day to experience a proper Australian beachside village. We were so pleased that we made the 20 minute journey norht of Cairns. The beach is just beautiful, not too many other people and there are plenty of sunlounges available for free along the foreshore. The swimming was quite safe and there were plenty of lovely places to have lunch and a coffee during the day.
We had an antipasto lunch with a glass of nice Australian wine at the Far Horizons restaurant which looks right out over the beach.
We would definitely recommend a trip to Palm Cove and the Far Horizons & if we ever return to the region, we would certainly want to stay in Palm Cove at one of the up market resorts they have there for a few days.
