Really enjoyed it this area. Beautiful beach with palm trees along the coast line. Nice cafes and pubs in the area. It's a must see if you are in Port Douglas

Great views of some of the islands. Fairly quiet days we spent here so you don't feel cramped with all the other tourists.

Palm Cove beach is just beautiful. Super clean with not a single piece of litter or rubbish in sight. Perfect for families, picnics, BBQ's or just sunbathing and paddling.

A getaway to go and getaway even if you have already had a little Cairns getaway. True magic. A stinger net, a pier a multitude of cafes and restaurants all right there on the beach. You could be in Hawaii or any other tropical island paradise. Parks for the kids and everyone is friendly laid back and getting some sun.

Great relaxing holiday. It is also kid friendly, but well spread out. Great mixture of ages all catered for. Everything within walking distance. Do not need a car. Bus Stop just outside the door.
