5 Reasons to Escape to the Whitsundays

After a bit of travel inspiration? Here are the top 5 reasons to pack your swimmers and explore the Whitsundays.

If you prefer to holiday somewhere hot, then pack your bags for the sunny Whitsundays.
Here are the top 5 reasons to visit the beautiful Whitsundays on your next vacation.
1. Soak up the Vitamin D
The Whitsundays is the perfect place to relax by the pool, drink cold cocktails, chill on the stunning beaches. Why not go on a GoDo Whitehaven Beach sailing adventure with time to relax and roll out your beach towel on the powdery, white sand.
2. Enjoy tropical cocktails
Relax on Hamilton Island with refreshing cocktails by the pool or at one of the bars. The Hamilton Island Reef View Hotel has a range of delicious cocktails on offer at the poolside Reef Terrace Restaurant. You can finish the evening with stunning sunset views sipping on a strawberry and orange ‘Summer Love’ cocktail at One Tree Hill, the Island’s hill-top lookout.
3. Indulge and get pampered
Relax at Airlie Beach’s Pinnacles Resort & Spa and get pampered with one of Endota’s spa specials. After your pampering, relax on the private verandah with views over the Coral Sea and Whitsunday Islands.
4. See the underwater world
With the water temperature rarely dropping below 23 degrees, it’s just the right temperature to get up close with tropical fish and colourful coral species, snorkelling or scuba diving along the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Did you know you can even spend the night out under the stars of the reef?
5. Spot a whale
From July to October, whales are a common sight frolicking among the Whitsunday Islands and even occasionally out on the Great Barrier Reef. Those out on the water, the islands, or even just sitting in a café by the beach are regularly indulged by excited young calves and their mothers breaching out of the water, playing with boats and each other, and majestically gliding through the waters of the Whitsundays.
