Hy­de­away Bay

ONE of the true hid­den gems of the Whit­sun­days, the tiny coastal ham­let of­fers pri­vacy and a beau­ti­ful sandy beach.

You will need a car, but once you get there it will be worth the drive.

Take your part­ner and comb for shells at the beach or take a dip in the water or just sit and en­joy the peace and quiet with your spe­cial some­one.

White­haven Beach

IT DOESN’T get much more ro­man­tic than pulling up a blan­ket on one of the best beaches in the world.

With plenty of tours of­fer­ing day trips, whether you’re into hik­ing, snorkelling or just re­lax­ing in the sand, the pure sil­ica sand and heav­enly feel will be sure to get even non-ro­man­tics feel­ing the love.

One Tree Hill look­out

THE Whit­sun­days is famed for its is­lands and Hamil­ton Is­land has it all.

Hop on a golf buggy and make the trek to this famed look­out with your part­ner.

The hill­top spot over­looks the is­land and of­fers truly breath­tak­ing views.

Abell Point Ma­rina

BE­ING the first ma­rina in the world to be awarded five gold an­chors is no small feat and Abell Point has it all.

Lo­cated off Shute Har­bour Rd in Air­lie Beach and with plenty of spots to grab a beer, wine or cof­fee, set­tle down and en­joy one of the most beau­ti­ful sun­sets you’ll ever see.

Honeyeater look­out

FOR the more ad­ven­tur­ous types, the Honeyeater look­out and trail has you cov­ered.

Ac­cessed from the Kara Cres­cent trail­head, fol­low the Con­way cir­cuit to the Honeyeater look­out turn off.

Af­ter a trek, that does re­quire a de­cent level of fit­ness, take in some of the best views of the re­gion.
