Whitsunday Island

Home to the world’s most romantic and beautiful beach, Whitsunday Island is an absolute must-visit. Whitehaven Beach showcases 7 kilometres of sparkling white sands and turquoise sea.

Further up the beach, you will find the famous Hill Inlet Lookout for breath-taking views of paradise.

Hook Island

If you are seeking for some adventure on your honeymoon itinerary, Hook Island is the place to be. Surrounded by natural serenity, this breathtaking island boasts fantastic lookouts, picturesque bushwalking trails, and some of the most diverse water diving sites in the region.

Perfect for a day visit, due to the lack of resorts, Hook Island offers a sense of privacy and escape.

Airlie Beach Bay

There is something exceptional about Airlie Beach Bay that makes it unique. It might be the views from the picturesque town, the magical sunsets or the marina in the background, but the truth is that you don’t have to go that far to find a dreamy location for your wedding.

We highly recommend anchoring near Mandalay House, an iconic spot of Airlie Beach, for a memorable ceremony and amazing photos.

Langford Island

Langford Island is located near Hayman Island, in the northern Whitsundays. Popular among sailors, divers, and snorkelers, Langford Island is ideal for nearby anchorage if you’re sailing your way through the archipelagos.

Romantic overnight anchorages in the Whitsundays

There are some very special anchorages where you can watch the milky way from your private yacht and let the ocean sound lull you to sleep. Our favourites are Chance Bay, Turtle Bay, Nara Inlet, Cid Harbour, Hook Passage, Saba Bay, Mackerel Bay, Mantaray Bay, Luncheon Bay, Butterfly Bay and Stonehaven bay

6 Sweet weather

The Whitsundays region is known for its tropical weather with high temperatures and stunning sunny days. During the hottest months, you can expect tropical rain at times, so we highly recommend considering winter for your wedding.

Early spring, specifically the month of September, is one of the best times to visit the Whitsundays. Everything aligns in September thanks to the consistently sunny weather, low humidity, light trade winds and perfect conditions for swimming, snorkelling and diving.
