All of the Palm Cove shops are located on the palm fringed beachfront of Williams's esplanade offering stunning views and mostly a nice sea breeze and a small village atmosphere amongst all of the low rise buildings that line the cobble stoned esplanade.

Palm Cove has no street vendors or hawkers but during different times of the year you will experience fun market days and art work shows and displays set up under the 200 year old Melaleuca trees and along the beachfront grasslands to give it more of that village atmosphere.

To walk the whole length of the Palm Cove beachfront shopping strip it would take you approximately 20 minutes based on you not stopping at any shops and you having a basic level of fitness.
