Summary

Palm Cove is a spectacular and popular beach just north of Cairns in Far North Queensland.

Description

A few clusters of slightly overhanging "very-sharp" sea side rocks with plenty of features and lots of fun to be had. Some are visible from the jetty at Palm Cove when looking North. The entire headland stretching around to the North has potential, just needs people to get out, scrub and send.

Easily accessible in a car about 25 minutes from Cairns International Airport.

Access issues

Time it around the daily tide surges. At high tide the waves do come up quite high. Be polite to any others around and be helpful in your answers to both tourists and locals. This is a very public spot - best to be civil .

Approach

Drive to the northern end of Williams Esplanad. Park in the car park near the Jetty. Walk out of the carpark as if you were going to walk onto the jetty, then turning down onto the beach to the North following the waterline and you'll first find the Pocket City wall, another 50m north is No Fall Boulder, and then another 100m again and you're at Coveted Grains and the beach which holds Blockhead Corner at the northern end.

Where to stay

There is a range of accommodation available locally, from camping to luxury resorts.

Ethic

Take ALL rubbish with you, and take any you find there back with you. Let's keep it pristine and help each other!
