Where to get a paddleboard in Palm Cove

We hire paddleboards and run tours from the south end of Palm Cove. You will see our awesome trailer in the carpark. The north end has a jetty, which can be a major hazard with currents and waves and should definitely be avoided. But apart from the jetty, it is a very safe beach to paddle board. The south end is a bit more open too. There are also cafes and restaurants just behind where we operate.

How to get to Palm Cove

If in Cairns City, simply drive north along the Captain Cook highway for about 30 minutes. You will see Palm Cove is clearly signposted. From Port Douglas, just head south for about 30 minutes along the Captain Cook Highway. There are also public buses and shuttles from all of the beaches and towns.

Paddleboarding Palm cove to Double Island

Paddleboading Palm Cove

Paddleboarding Palm Cove is great, but taking the short paddle over to Double Island is a must. There are sea caves, beautiful reefs and amazing beaches over at Double Island. The water is generally a lot clearer too. The marine life is also a massive plus. You are almost guaranteed to see turtles, birds, rays and colourful fish. We also run Kayak Turtle Tours over to these island on kayak if that is more your thing.
