Hill Inlet, Whitsunday Island

#2 of 8 in Parks in Whitsunday Islands
Pure-white sands and vibrant blue waters make Hill Inlet one of the most visited tourist spots in the area. The inlet is located at the northern end of Whitehaven Beach, part of the Whitsunday Islands National Park. Best viewed from the lookout at Tongue Point, the inlet's white sands and blue waters blend seamlessly to create a sight most visitors describe as nothing short of breathtaking. You can take a boat to Tongue Bay and then make the short uphill walk to the point's lookout, but try to be there when the tide is low to experience this unusual fusion of colors. For those preferring a view from high above, helicopter and seaplane tours are also available.

  • Hill Bay is located north of Whitehaven Beach, and there is nothing more amazing about Hill Bay than when the tides change, with the sea and the larvae mixing with each other, and the far view (tongue-watching tongue-in-waiting tongue Point) or high-altitude overlooking (helicopter or small aircraft) is the most stunning viewing point! Departing from the pier on a catamaran, when you reach near Hill Bay, you'll be transferred to the ferry, disembarking and hiking up the hill for about 15 minutes to reach the observation deck. After a 15-minute stay at the observation deck, go snorkeling in the shallows below the mountain, where many devilfish are !!! Occasionally you can see a few small lemon sharks, small sharks do not eat people!!! It's just that swimming faster and trying to shoot is not easy.
