All the different treks are easily accessible straight from WAHI’s doorstep. Why not challenge yourself and hike to the top of the highest point in Hamilton Island, Passage Peak. We promise you won’t regret it. Not only will you be getting your step count up, but your camera will be getting a good workout as well.

2. Coral Cove—a Secluded Slice of Paradise

While we’re on the topic of hikes, let us introduce you to Coral Cove, a hidden gem tucked away on the island. You’ll be feeling nice and warm by the end of this trail which means that the dip in the ocean will feel even more worth it. The secluded heaven also features a swing, which makes for the perfect ‘gram-worthy shot! With a picture-perfect backdrop (sometimes, all to yourself), we give you permission to get relaxed, unplug from the world and take those photos shamelessly!



3. Popular for a Reason - Catseye Beach

You can never go wrong with Catseye Beach. A popular location for relaxing, snorkelling and swimming, it’s also the perfect place to take some pics which are sure to make all your family and friends back home jealous. Resembling views that you’d see in postcards, Catseye Beach is so close to WAHI that it will literally feel like your backyard.

4. Experience the Beauty of Whitehaven Beach

With sand as white and powdery as it comes, Whitehaven Beach boasts to be one of the most photogenic destinations in the world. Make sure your batteries are fully charged in your devices because you’ll want to capture every single angle of this paradise. We aren’t over-exaggerating, it is truly breathtaking. Whitehaven Beach is located just a short boat ride away from Hamilton Island. However, if you’re looking to capture a bird’s eye view of Whitehaven Beach in all its glory, fly in with style via seaplane or helicopter. Either way, we guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
