We are heading to Palm Cove in July with two teenagers. We found excellent self catering accommodation at affordable prices off the www.stayz.com.au site for Palm Cove.

Hi,

Also have a look on wotif.com/hotels/australia-qld-palm-cove-hot… to see what suits your budget.

Palm Cove is quiter than Cairns or Port Douglas - the boys will have to go into Cairns for any action.

Are we talking nightclubbing for the teenagers.

If so Palm Cove is not the choice....biggest action is the pub.

TBH Palm Cove isn't the choice for action...

that is a cairns option.

What action are you seeking for teenagers..

Palm Cove is more a quiet family place located away from the hustle and bustle with a few other tour options

by action I was meaning other teenagers, swimming pools, shops and things to do. they are not yet up to night clubs.

Most of the action for teenagers will happen around the pool where they are staying. Shopping is a small strip with a few restaurants and souvenir shops. Think about half size of Kingston ACT without the huge restaurant choice.

The beach near Angsana is possibly a good option for the kids to find others. The other thing I'd suggest is do your reef trip early in the piece as sometimes they meet someone on board who will be staying nearby.

We found more teenagers ta Sea Temple than Angsana but neither would meet the quiet option...but then Guru thinks any more than 5 people in the pool is too many

Hi,

Totally agree with G/W

"by action I was meaning other teenagers, swimming pools, shops and things to do. they are not yet up to night clubs."

IMO, you are best to stay in Cairns or Port Douglas at least the boys will not be bored. Palm Cove is gorgeous but its totally romantic and basically only suited to couples.

Our teenagers love Palm Cove. We have probably visited 10+ times in the last 15 years, been every year for the last 6. They love it. We rent a house through Stayz, fantastic, table tennis table, pool, sunlounges, books, dvd's, privacy and 3 minute walk to beach.
