Palm Cove

Discover Cairns from this leafy, upmarket beach community to the north.

Palm Cove

Backed by Daintree Rainforest and sheltered by the Great Barrier Reef, Palm Cove is one of finest beach communities from which to explore and enjoy Cairns. Located a few kilometres north of the city, Palm Cove is the best-known beach in the area. With its seaside promenade and tree-lined esplanade, this upmarket beach community has much to offer. Palm Cove increasingly draws visitors in from Cairns, rather than the other way around. Whether you settle in for some spa pampering or rent a car to explore the area, Palm Cove makes an ideal accommodation base.
