Guests can choose from one or two bedroom self-contained apartments, resort style homes, or luxury properties with opulent features and fittings. Each property has everything you’ll need for your stay – including beach towels and a grocery delivery service. Just unpack and relax.
The happiest happy hour
Toast another day in paradise with a sundowner at one of Hamilton Island’s unique bars. To make the most of the spectacular sunsets over the Whitsunday Islands head to One Tree Hill for a cold beer or settle in at the yacht club’s Bommie Deck for some turtle spotting. If the idea of getting dressed for dinner doesn’t appeal, just stay in the pool and make the most of the swim-up Island Bar at the popular Main Pool.
Skip the traffic
There’s no road rage in paradise! Hamilton Island is car-free with golf buggies the most popular way of getting around. You will need a regular driver’s license to get behind the wheel but the buggies are fun and easy to drive. Buggies are included with all private accommodation offered through Whitsunday Holidays.
World’s best beach
The pure, white sand and turquoise waters make Whitehaven Beach heaven on earth. It has been named the top eco-friendly beach in the world and is just 30 minutes by high-speed catamaran from Hamilton Island. You can spend a day on the sand lapping up the sun and strolling to Hill Inlet for picture perfect views from the look out, or explore the magical world beneath the waves with a snorkelling adventure at an inner reef site.
Star gazing at the reef
Hamilton Island is the perfect base for a trip to one of the 7 natural wonders of the world – the Great Barrier Reef. Cruise Whitsundays runs daily trips to the reef from Hamilton Island Marina with options including an overnight adventure and the chance to sleep on a permanently moored pontoon with the stars above and the reef below. Certified divers can even take part in a night dive.
