Relax and Indulge in Palm Cove

Boasting a laid-back way of life, as well as spectacular scenery, whether you’re keen to escape the rat race or indulge in a bit of luxury, Palm Cove won’t disappoint. Here are four great reasons to choose Palm Cove for your next getaway.

Great location

Located just 20 minutes north of Cairns, Palm Cove is a sleepy coastal suburb with an appealing laid back village atmosphere and lush tropical environment. It is ideally situated a mere 30 mins drive north from the Cairns Airport and only 45 minute drive from Port Douglas. 

Palm Cove beach is recognised as one of Australia's most beautiful beaches.  The soft white sands and azure waters of the beach make it an appealing site to behold. 

The beach is a great place to enjoy swimming, snorkelling, picnics, superb restaurants and cafes, and shopping.

Accommodation to suit everyone

Palm Cove Beach is just across the road from Williams Esplanade, where you will find an array of great accommodation options. For those travelling in large groups needing a lot of room, there are self contained apartments or holiday homes to choose from. 

Many of these feature their own private swimming pool or private spa and are a great option for families. A self contained apartment is a popular choice for both couples or families that need room to move.

One of the benefits of an apartment is that most of them are self contained which can be great if travelling as a family.

For those looking for a bit of indulgence there are many luxurious resorts and hotels along the beach.  From penthouse apartments with a roof top spa to swim up rooms, the resorts of Palm Cove are sure to please. 

Guests can enjoy breathtaking scenery, warm tropical breezes and colourful sunsets from the comfort of their bedroom. Some may like to enjoy the views from their private spa in their bedroom or order a cocktail by the pool.

Palm Cove also has plenty to offer for the budget conscious traveller.  The Palm Cove Holiday Park offers camping at a reasonable rate. Alternatively, travellers can choose a budget style studio resort room or a hotel room for those looking to save on accommodation.

Family friendly

Palm Cove is the perfect spot for traveling with children and most importantly, it CAN be done on a budget. There are many families seeking the same thing... a quiet, chilled out, luxurious holiday.

So, unlike other similar places, parents don’t feel uncomfortable when they walk into a restaurant with their children in tow.  Some families like to try their luck at fishing off the Palm Cove Jetty or perhaps hiring some of the water sports available on the beach.

Parents might like to treat themselves to a night out and hire a babysitter while the kids sleep peacefully in their bedroom.
