Cow Bay Beach, Cape Tribulation

Whether you’re lazing out on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, hiking some of the beautiful rainforest trails or marvelling at the region’s vibrant wildlife, Cape Tribulation is one of the sites that make the Daintree Rainforest so spectacular!

Cow Bay Beach is one of Cape Tribulation’s most dreamy and secluded beaches, a palm-lined paradise just made for kicking back and letting the day float by. What makes Cow Bay Beach such a spectacular beach is its relative isolation from the rest of Cape Tribulation’s beaches, making it one of the less-visited but most tranquil beaches in the region.

So, for beachgoers who love nothing more than a secluded, natural paradise to while away the hours and enjoy a refreshing dip, Cow Bay Beach is the ultimate way to go!
