The Whitsunday Islands are nothing short of a dream destination. An unforgettable spot such as this demands the best activities, spots, and itinerary. With 74 islands to explore and a near-endless number of things to do, it’s impossible NOT to have an amazing time in these islands. But to make the most of your holiday, these are the items you should have on your Whitsunday bucket list.
Walk on Whitehaven Beach
If you’ve seen any photos of the Whitsundays, you’ve definitely seen Whitehaven Beach. This spectacular stretch of sand is known as one of the most photographed beaches in the world. It’s also regularly ranked as one of the globe’s BEST beaches, and one of the shorelines with the whitest sand. Clearly, it’s a bucket list topper! Whitehaven Beach truly is stunning, and you’ll want to take some time to walk on it and simply enjoy the beauty and serenity.
Explore the Ngaro Caves
Hook Island boasts the Nara Inlet, a 3km inlet which winds its way into the island. This is a lovely spot and a good choice for an anchorage. But heading onto the island itself is where the magic happens. Here, you’ll discover a cascading waterfall as well as a number of caves. Some of these contain ancient cave paintings by the Ngaro Aboriginal people. This is a cultural site not to be missed.
Snorkel on Stunning Reefs
The Whitsundays are well known for our vibrant, tropical coral reef systems. The snorkelling here is unparalleled and you can’t leave the region without exploring our undersea world. With great visibility in many spots, you can discover colourful coral in a variety of shapes and sizes, teeming with marine life including many species of tropical fish. In some spots you can often find manta rays, sea turtles, and other impressive wildlife.
Sail in Style & Luxury
The absolute best way to experience the Whitsunday Islands is on a bareboat yacht charter. Of course, we may be a bit biased, but we know firsthand just how magical a sailing holiday can be! With your Whitsunday yacht charter, you’ll be living a dream. Yachting is synonymous with the luxury lifestyle. All of our vessels are stunning boats that are both stylish and comfortable. With every needed amenity (plus a few extra luxuries) you’ll be living the high life during your holiday. Feeling like royalty in one of the world’s most beautiful island destinations; it’s an experience that can’t be beat.
Enjoy a Meal Under the Stars
Finally, on your Whitsunday bucket list should be dinner & drinks under the starry night sky. Away from the chaos of everyday life and the noise and lights of big cities, the sky over the islands is huge and filled with stars. From onboard your private bareboat charter, you can enjoy a blissful meal, with only the celestial heavens as your company. This is the stuff dreams are made of.
