Things to do in Palm Cove
Palm Cove provides plenty to fill your days, even without leaving this tiny coastal village. With its idyllic coconut palms, locals fishing off the jetty, and stinger-resistant swimming net for healthy dips all year round, the uncrowded beach welcomes swimmers, sun-lovers and photographers alike.
Alternatively, locating a meditation class or a world of spa treatments within walking distance is not difficult; surrendering to beauty practises, luxurious body therapies and indulgent facials inspired by Aboriginal peoples. And … Just exhale.
Swap your daily ride around Double Island offshore for a sunrise or sunset kayak, take in a fresh view of the cobbled waterfront esplanade of Palm Cove, filled with vibrant shops and picturesque accommodation. Settle in at one of the many alfresco eateries brimming with fresh produce after you’ve worked up an appetite.
Though small, Palm Cove is at the core of a vast and diverse area – the perfect base from which to drive yourself or join one of the tours that regular depart to nearby world-class attractions. Meet the locals in Kuranda’s quaint mountain village or Port Douglas’ vibrant resort area, or head further to the Daintree and Cape Tribulation’s exhilarating wilderness. Encounters with up-close wildlife and marine life abound in nearby sanctuaries and, of course, the Great Barrier Reef, both at the doorstep of Palm Cove.
