The summer weather isn’t the only thing getting hot on the island at the moment! This year, Valentine's Day is turning up the heat so you can treat your partner—or yourself—to the ultimate loved-up getaway. While romance may mean something different to every person, we’ve got plenty up our sleeves to keep everyone feeling the love. 

If you’re planning on scooping up your lover for a Valentines trip to the Whitsundays this year, the WAHI team has put together the perfect romantic itinerary to ensure the holiday goes off without a hitch! From postcard-perfect sunsets to romantic sailing trips and relaxing spas, we’ve got you covered on all bases. 

Top Five Valentines Activities to Do During Your Stay at WAHI


1. Wine and dine

The Whitsundays is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful locations in all of Australia—if not, the world! The only thing that beats the incredible landscape is having the opportunity to soak it all up while enjoying a delicious meal and refreshing cocktail. Take your pick from any one of the world-class restaurants on the island to enjoy a selection of locally-sourced and seasonally rotating menus, all served with a side of 10/10 views. You can explore all the best restaurants on offer across the island here.



2. Sail into the sunset 

While enjoying the sunset over dinner is an unforgettable experience, there is something extra romantic about experiencing it from the water. To really dial-up the heat on your Valentine’s date, why not book you and your partner in for a sunset sailing trip through the Whitsundays? Imagine making a toast to each other while watching swirls of pink, purple and orange cover the entire sky. We can assure you this is an experience you’ll simply never forget. 


3. Spend a day at Catseye Beach

For plenty of couples, the most precious gift is quality time spent together. When you’re staying at WAHI, Catseye Beach is the perfect place to hang out and enjoy the company of your partner. There are also plenty of restaurants within a short walk of the beach, which all offer a range of take-away options that you can bring down to the sand for a picnic. After indulging in fresh prawns, crispy salads and delightful pastries, you can spend the rest of the day lazing in the sun, swimming in the water and catching up with each other.

4. Visit Whitehaven Beach

There is a reason Whitehaven Beach was TripAdvisor’s ‘Travellers Choice Best Beach in the World 2021’. The glistening blue waters and sprawling white sand makes it an absolutely stunning place all year round. You and your lover can enjoy the sunshine and cool off in the crystal clear waters for a simple day out or you can take it up a notch with a seaplane ride over to the beach. The choice is all yours!

5. Go for a hit of golf 

While golf might not be everyone’s idea of a romantic day out, it’s always nice to treat your partner to a day spent doing their favourite activity. The Hamilton Island Golf Club offers a unique and challenging 18-hole, par 71 course—ideal for everyone from amateurs to experienced professionals. As the only golf course on its own island in Australia, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you and your partner can hold onto forever.
