Palm Cove is a beach community in Far North Queensland, Australia, located 27 kilometres north of Cairns. Its name refers to the palm trees that line the beach. It is guarded from the South Pacific Ocean by the Great Barrier Reef, completely surrounded by the Daintree Tropical Rainforest and is close to Daintree National Park with a tropical climate. It’s very small and the place doesn’t offer many public services. The first international hotel chain to establish there was the Ramada Reef Resort in 1986 and the town has continued to increase in national and international recognition ever since. You’ll find many
joggers, walkers and cyclists there. There’s a service of life guard patrol swimming all year long. The Palm cove jetty is one of the regions most popular fishing spots where anglers regularly catch species such as mackerel, Giant Trevally and shark. You have many activities to do water rafting, hot air ballooning, parachuting, horse riding, all terrain vehicles, deep sea or reef fishing, kayaking, jet skis and sailing.
You can choice among different good hotels and resorts but if you prefer, there are lots of appartments to rent too.
There aren’t many options for shopping but there’s a shopping centre in the nearby community of Smithfield.
The Great Barrier Reef is a ‘must do’ activity; there are tours operators offering excursions where you can dive, snorkel or simply view this natural wonder through a glass bottom boat or underwater observatory.
There’s also a wildlife Zoo very near the beach.
