The pristine Whitsunday Islands—known for their relaxing white sand beaches and untouched natural beauty—are a place where you don’t want to experience trip-planning stress. On this Whitehaven Beach cruise, all the details are all taken care of, including a hike to Solway Circuit Lookout, Chance Bay, and Hill Inlet. A mix of guided walks and free time combines the best elements of an organized and self-guided tour.

What to Expect

Following pickup from your hotel in Hamilton Island or Port Airlie, travel to Whitehaven Beach for a few hours of free time. Once there, your guide sets up beach tents, games, and a picnic lunch to be enjoyed at your leisure.

Take a guided boat tour to Hill Inlet and disembark for a gentle walk to a lookout point. Here, take in panoramic views of the archipelago and learn about the area’s history.

Then, back at Whitehaven Beach, set off on a moderate 4.5-mile (7-kilometer) hike along a nature trail that leads to Solway Circuit Lookout and Chance Bay.

At the end of your tour, enjoy afternoon tea on a relaxing cruise around the Whitsundays. The tour concludes with hotel drop-off.

Whitehaven beach was like paradise on Earth, so gorgeous and breathtaking. And the sailing in the catamaran Camira was really fun, with great super fun and helpful staff and awesome for solo travellers!
