Palm Cove
Palm Cove has a popular swimming beach with enough space to relax in solitude or with friends and family (the beach has a stinger resistant enclosure). If the heat gets too much grab a cooling refreshment from the ice cream stand right on the beach or meander through the Palm Cove village on a shopping excursion.

Shopping here is very limited. Shoppers would do best to take the bus into Cairns for a more extensive range.

Entertainment is also very limited. Again Cairns is the best hope although note that buses back, stop in early evening.

The hotels in Palm Cove have their own restaurants or there is a pleasing restaurant in the arcade where kookaburras sometimes come to be hand-fed.

All the usual resort style facilities are available such as numerous swimming pools, gold courses, tours to the reef/islands and more. The area is in close proximity to the many tourist attractions of Cairns and surrounds so areas like Kuranda and the rainforest are all close by and easy to get to.
