Palm Cove, the Spa Capital of Australia, is a cosmopolitan village on the peaceful Coral Sea situated only 25 minutes from Cairns airport.
This charming beach destination with its idyllic coconut palm fringed beach offers a range of spa treatment facilities, boutique shops, alfresco cafes, restaurants and quaint water-front bars in a splash of Caribbean colours.
The beach is simply beautiful and worthy of all the accolades it has received "Queensland's Cleanest Beach", "Far North Queensland's Friendliest Beach", and even "Australia's Cleanest Beach".
Swimming at Palm Cove is safe year round. Lifeguards are present and during the warmer summer months of the wet season when the stingers (box jellyfish) are present, a large safe netted swimming enclosure is in place.
