Filled with rich, golden sand, Palm Cove Beach is the place to be while visiting this holiday destination. While the depth of the beach is short, the sands stretch a great length, which makes Palm Cove Beach the perfect location for a romantic sunrise or sunset stroll. Designated swimming areas allow those with children and novice swimmers to feel at ease, and outside the swimming area, the expansive surf provides an unbeatable surfing experience. Before you leave, pick a spot up on the shore under one of the many palm trees, and have a picnic. There are numerous restaurants and cafes around the beach, most of which provide fantastic takeout options. As you dine, you have breathtaking views over the ocean.
While this quiet beach town offers a relaxing setting, Palm Cove is anything but boring. Do not forget to bring your fishing rod along when you head to the beach, as the town's jetty is nearby and offers a great fishing destination. Further out into the water, sea kayaking, sailing, cruising and deep-sea fishing are fun activities. If you like to play on land, try horseback riding, long walks, bird watching, golfing or playing tennis. There is even an activity for those that want a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: hot air balloon rides. Take in the lush landscape and the soothing blue water from high above as you partake in this safe and exhilarating way to see Palm Cove.
The Great Barrier Reef is located just a short boat ride off the coast of Palm Cove, and this means that all of the colourful wonder that lies just beneath the crystal-clear blue waters of the ocean are within your reach. Hire a boat tour to take your party out to the reef for the best experience. Many of the companies provide all of the snorkels, diving gear and water toys needed for fun on the reef. The small islands in the middle of the reef are a great place for families with small children to splash about, and with the high population of marine life, colourful fish and coral, there is always something to see, even from the shore.
Another great place for exploration, Daintree National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers an unforgettable outdoor experience. The flourishing rainforest that fills the park is a great environment for frogs, reptiles, birds, mammals and even bats and butterflies, which means there is always something to look at as you hike through. Various walking paths allow you to fully explore the rainforest, and there are tour guides available for hire.

Stinger season generally runs from November to May. The stinger resistant swimming enclosures at local beaches give a high degree of protection against Box Jellyfish (but are not 100 percent 'stinger proof').
Beaches may be closed when stingers are present. Closures remain in place until weather patterns change and drive stingers away from the coastline. Always heed lifesavers' warnings and do not swim when beaches are closed.
You can reduce your exposure to potential stings by wearing protective clothing (wetsuit or full-body lycra suit) and enter the water slowly as stingers will often swim away, given the chance.
If you are stung at a beach without a lifeguard, get out of the water and apply liberal amounts of vinegar, which can be found on all main beaches. Monitor the patient's breathing and send for urgent medical attention.
