Situated in the aptly named ‘Coral Sea’, the Whitsunday Islands are the perfect place to relax, indulge and of course take in the spectacular sights. They are an array of islands, each home to secluded white sand beaches, warm waters full of diverse marine wildlife, and lush green rainforests. Since the majority of these islands are uninhabited, Whitsunday Island holidays are a great opportunity to go and explore - whether you pick to travel by boat or jet ski, explore the islands on foot or by buggy or even see what you can discover under the water on a scuba dive. That is of course if you are one of the few who manage to tear yourself away from gazing at the sights from a sun lounger.
Hamilton Island Holidays
The largest of the Whitsunday Islands, Hamilton Island is easily accessible and has something to suit everyone. Its range of restaurants, bars and activities mean that holidays to Hamilton Island offer tropical island relaxation, while still giving you plenty of things to do.
Surrounded by azure waters, beautiful beaches and coral reefs, Hamilton Island is a tropical paradise of unspoilt beauty right on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef. The short boat trip out to discover the incredible sights of the reef is a once-in-a-life time experience that truly cannot be missed. For sights you’ll never forget, grab a snorkel and get up close to the reef and its huge range of diverse marine life.
If you prefer to take in the stunning sights from dry land, grab a map and take a bush walk. The Resort Lookout trail is a great way to get to know the island, taking you to its second highest point, where you can look out over nearly the whole island.
No matter which island you choose to stay on, Whitsunday island holidays are the perfect opportunity to indulge in relaxation, and enjoy the stunning scenery – you’ll never want to leave.
