Palm Cove Beach Activities

Palm Cove Beach

Welcoming locals and a sense of community spirit have clinched two Queensland titles for Palm Cove at the Keep Australia Beautiful Awards this week. Palm Cove tied with Whitehaven Beach as Queensland's Friendliest Beach and received the Partnerships Award in conjunction with Federation Walk on the Gold Coast.

Palm Cove Beach Activities

The standout beauty of our beaches in Tropical North Queensland is that the rainforest meets the reef, literally. You have beautiful shady trees with birds and butterflies right there on the beach with you. No need for an umbrella; just choose a tree. There are even some beaches that have lagoons and rivers on them as well but we strongly recommend you only swim in the sea as these rivers, lagoons and billabongs are homes to the prehistoric crocodile. Look out for the crocodile warning signs before entering all waterways. Achtung!

Palm Cove Holidays For Kids

When travelling with kids you need to take into consideration what there is for them to do, what there is for them to see, and what there is for them to eat and the best type of holiday accommodation to suit them. And if you do not take these things into consideration then beware, as not being prepared to cater for these mini travellers can be dangerous for new players. Luckily Palm Cove is a tried and tested place for thousands of children and families over the years and they have given it their stamp of approval just by returning again year after year.

If you are looking for things to do and things to see in Palm Cove then just take a peek outside your resort down to the beach and along the esplanade there is a myriad of in water and on the beach activities to jump into, there are shops and restaurants, spas and beauty salons, there is something for everyone to see and do. Palm Cove is perfectly positioned in the centre between Cairns and Port Douglas making it the best location to holiday as all tourist attractions are easily accessible north or south and to the west. Also all tour operators pick guests up from your Palm Cove holiday accommodation so there is no need for a rental car and to stress yourself out trying to follow maps to find all the tourists attractions in the region.
