Palm Cove Luxury Accommodation - Location, Location, Location!
With ratings of Australia's Cleanest Beach, North Queensland's Friendliest Beach and Australia's Top Ten Beaches ("On the Road" Magazine), Palm Cove is a premier beach destination not only in Australia, but also in the world.
Gorgeous palm fringed beaches and a beachside esplanade lined with majestic melaleuca trees, are set against the stunning backdrop of rain-forest covered mountains, making for a beach resort paradise like no other.
With it's year-round warm tropical water, silky sandy beaches, beachfront promenade with restaurants, cafes, galleries and bars, easy access to numerous tourist attractions including the magnificent Great Barrier Reef, Palm Cove is the perfect vacation destination for just about anyone.
Our Palm Cove holiday accommodation is unlike other beach resorts. The area is not overdeveloped, lending itself to a comfortable, casual atmosphere, yet with world-class Palm Cove accommodation. In Palm Cove, you can eat traditional fish and chips wrapped in paper while enjoying a beachside sunset or you can dine in one of the many five star restaurants. At last count, there were more than 20 restaurants within seven minutes walk of the Amphora Resort. All of the beachfront shops and activities are located within the same stretch. Thus, you can experience complete and utter relaxation at the beach or participate in numerous fun-filled activities. You can only experience this, however, with Palm Cove apartment accommodation.
Located only 20 minutes drive north from the tropical Cairns, and 40 minutes from Port Douglas, Palm Cove is an easily accessible holiday destination on its own, or as a part of a larger itinerary. Once you've discovered the area and experienced first class Palm Cove, Queensland accommodation, you'll want to return year after year.
Once you have stayed in Palm Cove luxury apartments, then we believe you will find, as many of guests have, that Palm Cove holiday rentals are the places where you will stay next time. No doubt you will visit Port Douglas and Cairns City Centre, but they’re not the best places to stay once you discover Palm Cove Beach apartments.
In Palm Cove, you will find that throughout the day and in the evening, that it is difficult to find a place to park on the Esplanade; yet if you go for an early morning walk, there is hardly a car to be seen because the people who are staying in Cairns or Port Douglas and have spent the day or evening in Palm Cove have gone home. Only those staying in Palm Cove holiday apartments are there. Port Douglas is quite famous and justifiably so. Bill Clinton stays there at the Mirage on the beach, but very few people can afford that. Four Mile Beach is a very nice beach, but the resorts are not located on the beachfront; rather most are located on suburban streets. Besides, Port Douglas is an additional forty minutes from the airport, and for seasoned travelers, that is important. Though most prefer Palm Cove apartments, Cairns is also quite famous as a tourist destination, but unfortunately has the makings of a tourist trap. You will find many Palm Cover resorts that are beautiful and Palm Cove apartments will give you access to what those staying in Cairns and Port Douglas can’t experience. You will have a much more relaxing holiday with a Palm Cove holiday resort.
Palm Cove is easily accessed via Cairns International Airport. A car, taxi, coach or limousine can then be taken to the actual resort. While in Palm Cove, a car is not necessary but may be rented for day trips and excursions. You will be close when you stay at a Palm Cove resort. Cairns is only 25 minutes by car.
Our local managers offer airport transfers which will be offered to you when you book. We think you will find them very competitive in comparison with the following
The transfer business in the Cairns area is an industry by itself. Even if you hire a car, you may find that you need transfers. For example, if you travel up to Kuranda via the Scenic Railway and come down via Skyrail, you will need to transfer at the bottom so that you can pick up your car. As an alternative, you can travel both to and from the terminals via the blue Sunbus, which also passes along the Esplanade.
Black & White Taxis operate 24h. Ph. 131 008 (Cairns area)

You can download the above Sunbus Timetable from the following link, but there should be one in each apartment; if it is not there, then please ask our local managers for a copy.
