Welcome to WAHI! If you're ready to soak up some serious sun, splash in crystal-clear water and experience views so breathtaking they'll leave you speechless, then you're in the right place.

The island is the ultimate vacation destination for anyone needing a little R&R (and, honestly, who isn't?). But what sets the island apart from other tropical destinations is its sheer variety of jaw-dropping views. We're talking panoramic vistas of stunning blue waters, hilltop hikes that will take your breath away (literally), and white sandy beaches that make you feel like you're living in a postcard.

And if you're staying at WAHI, you'll be in for a treat. Our apartments are located right on Catseye Beach, which means you'll have access to some of the best views around - all from the comfort of your own balcony.

So, grab your sunscreen, camera, and a big ol' smile, because it's time to experience the magic of the Whitsundays!

The Best Lookouts on the Island

Passage Peak

Our first destination is the mighty Passage Peak, the highest point on the island. Now, don't let the name scare you - the effort is well worth it when you reach the top and take in the jaw-dropping views. You can see the entire island from up here, including panoramic views of the Whitsunday Passage and surrounding islands.

South East Head

Next, we have South East Head, which boasts some of the most awe-inspiring views of the Whitsundays you have ever seen. This hike is more of a leisurely stroll than Passage Peak, so you can take your time and really soak in the views. Trust us; you won't want to rush through this one.

One Tree Hill Lookout

Oh, you're in for a treat! One Tree Hill Lookout is hands down one of the most Instagram-worthy spots on the island, and for good reason. It offers panoramic views of the island and the surrounding Whitsunday islands and boasts an epic cocktail bar where you can sip on a refreshing drink while taking in the stunning vistas!


And most importantly, the views from your very own WAHI apartment! Imagine waking up to the sun rising over Catseye Beach with a steaming cup of coffee in hand and the sound of the waves crashing against the shore. It's enough to make even the grumpiest morning person crack a smile.

Beach Views

When it comes to tropical island getaways, nothing beats the feeling of sand between your toes and the warm sun on your skin. Luckily, the Whitsundays is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, each with its own unique and stunning views.

Catseye Beach

Our first beach stop is the stunning Catseye Beach, situated right in the heart of the island. This beach is a real crowd-pleaser with its sparkling water and a long stretch of soft sand. But what sets it apart is the jaw-dropping views of the surrounding Whitsunday Islands. You could spend hours lounging on the beach, basking in the sunshine and watching the boats sail by.

Whitehaven Beach

Next on our list is Whitehaven Beach. Consistently ranked as one of the best beaches in the world, Whitehaven Beach is a must-visit spot! With its soft, white sand that feels like powder underfoot and its turquoise waters that seem to go on forever, it's no wonder that visitors from around the globe flock to this beach. And the views? They're simply breathtaking. From the Hill Inlet Lookout, you can see the iconic swirling sand and watch as it changes with the tide. It’s a view so stunning that you’ll be reaching for your camera faster than you can say "cheese"!

On the Water

Surrounded by the Great Barrier Reef, there is no better way to see the beauty of the Whitsundays than to get out on or above the water.
