Pleasant though Mission Beach was, it was time to move on to Palm Cove. Actually, most afternoons at Mission Beach were quite windy (from the south east), and this was the case at Palm Cove also, although perhaps just slightly warmer than at Mission Beach. At Mission Beach, we had a jumper or cardigan in the evenings – not really a great hardship compared with the temperature further south, of course!
Palm Cove has a number of “up-market” resorts, compared with Castaways being the only one in this category at Mission Beach. We’re not in a resort, as such, but a self-catering apartment, with a balcony overlooking the beach. All very pleasant!
