Hamilton Island Queensland: 8 Reasons Why You Need To Visit

7. There is so much entertainment!

There is so much to do on this wonderful island, you and your family will never get bored. Or you can also relax and do absolutely nothing.

Bliss by the pool

Just spread the resort striped towel in a great position and relax. There are many privileged places by the Bougainvillea pool, the main pool, the Sails pool, the Reef View Hotel or your private pool villa.

The large deep pool in front of the resort actually had old dolphins in it, and you would watch them play and play with the meal while eating, but obviously, times have changed and that is no longer appropriate.


After a relaxing session by the pool, enjoy a real time of relaxation in one of the island’s luxurious spas. Spa Wumurdaylin and Spa Qualia are highly recommended experiences.


Take a look at some of the beautiful island boutiques and head to your favorite resort to wear fashion brands or browse some fresh home decor, of course island style.


There are some decent walks for all levels of fitness on Hamilton Island that take you to great quests and secluded beaches. Just remember to pack some water and tell someone you are going to.


Enjoy a cruise to the surrounding islands and explore all the natural beauty they have to offer, visit Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet and Whitsunday Peak.
