Accommodation Cairns and Northern Beaches

The award-winning beach at Palm Cove is a sight to behold. Lined with Melaleuca trees, some that are over 500 years old. Palm Cove’s owes much of it’s charming character to this unique rainforest species. Ellis Beach is a five minute drive by car and boasts an equally attractive beach and swimming facilities with the beach lined with mango trees instead of the Cove’s Maleleuca trees. These Cairns and northern beaches are excellent for sunbathing and swimming. After all at a thirty minute drive from Cairns, Palm Cove could almost be considered a remote suburb of Cairns.

For the adventurous, at the far northern end of Palm Cove there is a track that winds that will take you to a a small private beach. It’s not as pretty, or as swimmable as Palm Cove beach but it’s an interesting location to explore, studded with large boulders. The beach is also surrounded by a steep hill so there is no other access to this beach other than by boat. Perfect if you are looking for a very quiet beach.
