Ah, the Great Barrier Reef. If you didn’t see it for yourself you’d be forgiven for thinking this sailing and watersports hub at the tip of the country was the figment of someone’s imagination. Crystal clear waters, pristine sandy beaches and a world-renowned reef make this the quintessential sun, sand and sea romantic paradise island holiday. Seventy-four islands make up the great Whitsundays, and while there are ten resorts on eight of the islands to choose from, we’re big fans of Hayman. Renowned for its luxurious surroundings as well as outstanding chefs and cuisine, it’s the epitome of romantic indulgence. Wouldn’t you want to be surrounded by a huge lagoon pool overlooking tropical vistas and sandy white beaches? Quaint island boutiques, sumptuous dining and killer sunsets with a cocktail in hand are the stuff romantic vacations are made of.
Hayman, Australasia’s most awarded luxury nature resort, is a private island of astonishing natural beauty, restorative peace, adventure and indulgence. Hayman offers a front-row seat to the Great Barrier Reef and a world of leisure and adventure.
On a sparkling sunny day the colour of the water of Hayman’s lagoon and Whitsunday Passage are simply stunning – the hues range from turquoise to emerald and sapphire. There’s excellent snorkelling directly off one of the beaches on Hayman in Blue Pearl Bay. Some argue this is the best beach snorkelling in the Whitsundays.
Things To Do:
Hayman Island offers guests plenty of activities that range from bushwalks to tours of the nearby Great Barrier Reef. Cruise or fly by helicopter to see Heart Reef, Hill Inlet or Whitehaven Beach, it’s all possible at Hayman Island.
