About the neighbourhood
Cow Bay is a small community with many of the homes beautifully camouflaged within the rain forest. There is a shop which provides basic supplies and a petrol station. The Cow Bay Beach is as stunning as any other tropical beach and is close proximity to many boardwalks and trails. We have two unique ice cream places, a few cafes and a hotel. You do need a car to get around and really explore the area. It is a 30-40 minute drive to Cape Tribulation.
