Shaded by coconut palms, this sleepy enclave in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef region is a medley of cobblestone streets and quaint houses fringed by vast swathes of golden sands, yet it also plays host to a raft of luxury hotels and fine dining restaurants, making this the perfect place to stop-off on your Australia private yacht vacation.
This tiny beachside village is centered around a pretty esplanade lined with 500-year-old melaleuca trees, where you can browse the quaint clapboard stores and cafes that line the path.
Dubbed the spa capital of Australia, Palm Cove boasts a veritable medley of high-end resorts and day spas where you can indulge in luxurious massages or treatments before or after hitting the beach.
The main drawcard is the glistening blue water of the Coral Sea that fringes the coastal town. Here, you can enjoy any number of activities, including sunrise kayaking, paddle boarding and diving – this is Great Barrier Reef territory, after all!
