As the largest inhabited island of the 74 Whitsundays, there is plenty of room for visitors to spread out and enjoy a serene retreat. Hamilton Island offers a truly tropical location, as the average temperature throughout the year is a comfortable 27.4 degrees Celsius. The island is surrounded by azure waters and includes many pristine sandy beaches. Best of all, many of the holiday rentals available throughout the island boast water views, which allows visitors to enjoy their surroundings without even leaving their room.

Water Activities Abound

Of course, being surrounded by water, water activities are a major part of the Hamilton Island’s lifestyle. Diving and snorkelling excursions allow you to take in the dramatic coral reef that encircles Hamilton Island; choose from a variety of guided tours, or head out on your own. Go just a little further to experience the world-renowned Great Barrier Reef in all of its glory. Sea kayaking, swimming, paddle boarding, parasailing, fishing and catamaran rides are some of the calmer options out on the clear water. For adrenaline junkies, rent a jet ski, and cruise through the water at high speeds.

Don’t forget to check out the Hamilton Island Wildlife Park. Get up close and personal with koalas and learn interesting facts about many of Australia's native species.

Romance on Hamilton Island

Bring along some champagne and take to one of the deserted or little-known beaches on the island for a sunset picnic. In the evenings, dress up and dine out at one of the many high-end dining establishments on Hamilton Island. Bommie Restaurant is a highly rated favourite and allows patrons to sample their signature food while overlooking the marina. Finally, if you are in need of some serious R and R, head over to one of Hamilton Island's spas for a couple's massage or one of the many body treatments on offer.

We loved the pool and the beds were big and so comfortable. We also saw whales from our balcony! Having 2 buggies was great for our group of 8. We hope we can come back again next year.

The view is incredible and never got tired of it. Even saw whales in the distance. Stunning! Apartment nice and comfortable and well equiped. Overall it's getting a little tired, but clean and comfy and we would stay again. Service by villacare was lovely and the bottle of fizz on arrival and really nice touch. Loved relaxing on the island as always. Think a buggy should be included for price to improve value of hire.
