7. There Is So Much Entertainment!
There is so much to do on this brilliant island, you and your family will never be bored. Or you could also relax and do absolutely nothing at all.
Just spread out your stripy resort towel in a prime position and unwind. There are plenty of prime spots by Bougainvillea pool, Main pool, Sails pool, Reef View Hotel pool, or your private villa onsite pool to enjoy.
The big deep pool in front of the resort actually used to have dolphins in it in the old days, and you would watch them play and frolic while you had lunch but obviously, times have changed and this is no longer appropriate.
After your poolside relaxation session, get yourself some real down time at one of the Island’s luxurious spas. Spa Wumurdaylin and Spa Qualia are highly recommended sumptuous experiences.
Check out some of the beautiful boutique island stores and get decked out in your favourite resort wear fashion brands or browse some fresh home decor, island style of course.
There are some decent walks for all fitness levels around Hamilton Island that take you to magnificent lookouts and secluded beaches. Just remember to pack some water and tell someone where you are going.
Enjoy a cruise out to the surrounding islands and explore all the natural beauty they have to offer, visit Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet and Whitsunday Peak. Take a trip out to Heart Reef or go snorkelling, there are a million ways to explore the magical Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef from Hamilton Island.
