Trip Moments

If you haven’t visited Palm Cove then do so!!! Such a stunning and picturesque destination full of palm trees overhanging the amazing beach. An extremely romantic destination but also great for families. The esplanade stretches the entire length of Palm Cove, a short distance away from the main road which joins Cairns and Port Douglas. All along the esplanade are stunning hotels, fabulous restaurants all overlooking the beach with ocean views. Getting there - Buses (public and private charter), Uber etc., all go to Palm Cove from Cairns where the International Airport is located, about a 30 minute drive away. Once in Palm Cove you can walk everywhere, although you can hire cars and scooters for travelling further afield. There are also many tours you can book. Tours - Port Douglas is about a 40 minute drive north of Palm Cove. Considerably larger in size with a marina and a Main Street with shopping. Rainforests due to the tropical climate are everywhere and a trip to them are a must. Hartleys Crocodile Park is a great day out getting up close to crocs and is a short drive from Palm Cove. Restaurants - All cuisines catered for with amazing views of the ocean only a few metres from the beach. All budgets catered for also with probably one of the best surf clubs situated right across from the beach, cheap cold beers, great food and entertainment for the kids. Hotels - Book before you travel, especially at the moment during the pandemic when everyone is holidaying within Australia. All different budgets for the whole family. One of my favourites being the Pullman and the Reef House. All have swimming pools as unfortunately you can’t swim in the sea due to the local crocodiles and jelly fish! Although there is a netted area where you can have a swim in the sea if you so wish. I was lucky enough to live in Palm Cove for a short time, a truly stunning place to call home and used to pinch myself daily when sat having a coffee down on the esplanade 🌴 #wintergetaway#unforgettableexperiences#couplestrip#café#seasidephotoguide#beautifulhotel#naturalwonders
