About Queensland Beaches
Other Travel Guides
Look out Venice Beach! Beware Californian Long Beach! Palm Cove, in North Queensland, is here to steal your crown as the number one tourist beach in the world. Palm Cove is only 20 minutes from Cairns city, and has developed into a prime location for holidaymakers, on any budget.
The beach is arguably the most pristine of all Cairns' Northern Beaches, and it offers picnic tables and free barbeques along its entire length. At the northern end of the beach is a long jetty, described as the most expensive fishing platform in the world by local politicians.
Behind the fringe of palm trees lies Palm Cove Accommodation. From backpackers accommodation to 5-star resorts and fine-dining restaurants, Palm Cove has it all. This versatile beach can be used for the most relaxing holiday experience you can find, and can also serve as an exciting venue for water sports and other activities the far north has to offer.
And yes, it's great for in-line skating along the foreshore too!
Note: This beach has a stinger net during the stinger season. When the stinger net is in place, please only swim inside its protective barriers. Swimming outside the nets exposes you to unnecessary dangers.
