We plan on visiting Palm Cove in late December/early January. We love to swim at the beach and are wondering how reasonable this is based on some of what we have been reading. How often are the beaches closed due to the jellyfish? Is it wise to swim outside of the stinger nets? How is the weather typically during this time of year for enjoying the beach? We are wondering if we would be better off staying on an island? If so, any recommendations? We'd appreciate any advice we get from those in the know!
