Nestled in between the city of Cairns and the town of Port
Douglas lies Palm Cove - a 1.5km long beachfront village,
perfect for tropical holidays. Palm Cove is surrounded by
the mountains of the Great Dividing Range and looks over the
beautiful Coral Sea. There is easy access to the Great Barrier
Reef and the Daintree Rainforest is only a short drive away.
Palm Cove is described as a resort community, located on a
palm fringed beach.
Palm Cove is well known for its fine dining. Many of the
resorts along the palm lined esplanade have restaurants over
looking the sea. There are several bars and cafes that also
sit on the beach front so there is never a shortage of views
when ever you have a bite to eat or enjoy a cool drink. There
are various fashion outlets to be perused too with some specializing
in beach and resort wear.
We stayed at an intimate boutique hotel located opposite
the beach at Palm Cove called
Sebel Reef House & Spa. A romantic
and personal hideaway which captures the very essence of the
tropics. White wicker furniture, mosquito net draped beds,
airconditioned rooms with private VCR and CD players, superb
award winning outdoor dining, 3 swimming pools, 2 spas, bar
and cafe, and set in lush tropical gardens.
In and around Palm Cove there are a number of things to do.
There are several golf courses in the area; horse riding through
bush land; ATV tours for some serious quad biking action;
white water rafting on the Tully, Baron and Russell Rivers;
sky diving from 10,000 feet; luxury boat charters and scenic
helicopter and 4WD rainforest tours.
For the ultimate in seclusion and luxury in the tropics,
Palm Cove is the best choice for your holiday.
