Whitsunday’s Great Barrier Reef, Australia

Villa Del Mare is located on the beautiful Whitsunday Coast. The Whitsundays are a group of 74 islands between the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, and the tropical coast of Queensland, Australia. This region is also home to Airlie Beach, Whitehaven Beach, Hayman Island, and Hamilton Island.

Whitehaven Beach

Consistently rated among the top beaches in the world, Whitehaven Beach is the jewel in the crown of the Whitsundays. The crystal clear waters and pristine silica sand stretch over seven kilometres along Whitsunday Island, the largest of the 74 Whitsunday islands. It defines nature at its best and provides the greatest sense of relaxation and escape.

Neighboring Islands

Within a few minutes by helicopter, you can access Hamilton Island and Hayman Island, boasting luxurious dining and a plenitude of sea-side activities. From fine food and wine at the world-class resorts, to the vibrant fringe reefs, there is no shortage of fun. Hamilton Island’s new world-class facilities include the Hamilton Island Golf Club, the architectural wonder of the Hamilton Island Yacht Club, and Spa Wumurdaylin makes it a fresh and lively place for day visitors. 70% of the island is national park, striking a balance between extensive holiday facilities and the island’s striking natural beauty.

Hamilton Island Golf Club

The par 71 championship Hamilton Island Golf Club on neighbouring Dent Island is the only championship island golf course in Australia. The island’s natural beauty, together with its mountainous terrain affords stunning 360-degree views across secluded beaches to adjacent islands and the mainland beyond.

Hayman Island

Hayman Island is the northern most of the Whitsunday island resorts, the epitome of tropical paradise. The excellent snorkelling off the island’s northern beach, Blue Pearl Bay, makes it a popular spot for guests and day visitors alike.

Great Barrier Reef

Said to be the world’s largest living structure and the only one visible from outer space, the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. The Whitsundays region benefits from being located as the closest point off the Queensland coast to the Great Barrier Reef, which ensures it is the ideal hub from which to explore this aquatic wonderland. Stretching over 2000 kilometres in length, the Great Barrier Reef protects the Whitsunday Coast and Islands from huge ocean swells providing the region with some of the safest sailing and cruising waters in the world.
