What Sets Palm Cove Apart

There is a lot of literature that exalts Palm Cove as the premier Beach holiday location in the Cairns Northern Beaches.

Pick up any information brochure about the area and it will tell you that Palm Cove has the fastest growing economy of any suburb in the Cairns region, has the highest levels of development, has enormous tourist activity and looks set to retain these attributes for many years into the Future.

But what these same brochures don’t tell you are what day-to-day characteristics set Palm Cove apart from other beaches in Tropical North Queensland for holidaymakers.

Palm Cove What Sets it Apart

A Childs View on Palm Cove

Here is a video of an 8 year old childs view on Palm Cove as a holiday destination. As you can tell this is totally unsupervised

Beach Atmosphere

The population of Palm Cove is a combination of local residents and holiday visitors. The residents take great pride in their Beach and maintain it to high standards — hence Palm Cove has been named “Queensland’s Cleanest Beach”, “Far North Queensland’s Friendliest Beach”, and impressively, “Australia’s Cleanest Beach”.

This strong community atmosphere penetrates every aspect of Palm Cove, from late afternoon strolls along the sand to friendly driving directions given to lost tourists.

While other beaches in the Cairns region do combine local living with tourists, Palm Cove sets the standard that the remainder follow.

Cosmopolitan Village

With some of the Best Restaurants in Australia, Up-Market Boutique Shops and Luxurious Five Star Resorts, the village of Palm Cove possesses a cosmopolitan persona that is unique to Tropical Far North Queensland. Somehow the village of Palm Cove manages to keep its modesty and laid back feel despite the obviously luxurious assets it enjoys.

Palm Cove Jetty

Palm Cove is unique for its Jetty. No other beach in Cairns has this feature that kids love and fishermen revere. A morning walk along the beach gets an extra spice when you can walk out along the jetty and take in fabulous views of the coral coast.

Walking Distance

All Facilities and Attractions at Palm Cove are within walking distance of your holiday accommodation. The community is small enough to negate the need for a car, which can make your vacation much cheaper.

Central Location

Only a 25 minute drive to Cairns and a 35 minute drive to Port Douglas, Palm Cove is situated in the perfect location to explore the many Attractions of Far North Queensland.

The World Heritage-listed Rainforest is minutes from Palm Cove and the Great Barrier Reef; so close it is just a hop skip and a jump away.
