With Valentin’s Day here for another year, we thought it timely to share our favourite spots for romance. From secluded beaches to cocktails on a luxury island, woo your loved one or simply enjoy their company in private visiting these romantic locations dotted around the Whitsundays.
Dolphin Point, Hayman Island
A little known local favourite that in recent years has gained popularity for small wedding ceremonies & marriage proposals. Located on the north east tip of Hayman Island, this petite cove is only accessible by boat. While your there make the most of the romantic mood and snorkel the neighbouring Blue Pearl Bay holding hands with your loved one for the ultimate #couplegoals
Stonehaven Anchorage, Hook Island
This well know overnight anchorage offers stunning sunsets from its west facing position, looking out over the Coral Sea & Conway Ranges in the distance. Anchor up, grab a glass of wine and mellow out watching the sun set your favourite person.
Betty’s Beach, Whitsunday Island
A.K.A. Whitehaven Beach’s little sister, Betty’s Beach, located at the northern side of Hill Inlet & Whitehaven Beach gives couples the space and ‘deserted island’ feel that you’re probably chasing when booking a bareboat charter. With its pristine clear water and soft silica sand (that doesn’t heat up in the sun!) find yourself a private position amongst the rock boulders spotted along the sand and enjoy a lazy beach day with your special one.
One Tree Hill, Hamilton Island
When you’re ready to stretch your legs and get back to society, dock into Hamilton Island and make your way up to One Tree Hill for sunset cocktails. The bar offers a selection of cocktails, as well as tasting plates, allowing you to find a spot on the lawn to watch sunset over the islands in style. Follow your entré & cocktails with dinner at one of the many award-winning restaurants located on the island to top off your night of romance.
Turtle Bay, Whitsunday Island
When privacy and seclusion is all you’re after, take your boat around to Turtle Bay and enjoy the simple life of collecting sea shells with your loved one, taking dips in the crystal-clear waters and enjoying the rugged greenery that is the backdrop of this off-the-beaten track bay.
