Hayman Island, an Australian vacation spot along the Great Barrier Reef and one of our Top Romantic Destinations

AUSTRALIA

Luxuriate on the Beaches of Hayman Island, Whitsundays
Queensland

Ah, the Great Barrier Reef. Crystal clear waters, pristine sandy beaches and a world-renowned reef make this sailing and watersports hub off the northeastern coast of Australia the quintessential sun, sand and sea paradise island holiday. Seventy-four islands comprise the great Whitsundays, and while there are ten resorts on eight of the islands to choose from, we're big fans of Hayman. Renowned for its luxurious surroundings as well as its outstanding chefs and cuisine, it's the epitome of romantic indulgence. Wouldn't you want to be surrounded by a huge lagoon pool overlooking tropical vistas and sandy white beaches? Don’t miss Whitehaven Beach, with its stark white silica sand and aquamarine waters stretching for seven kilometers along the largest of the Whitsundays. Quaint island boutiques, sumptuous dining and killer sunsets with a cocktail in hand are the stuff romantic vacations are made of.

Note: Hayman Island will become One&Only Hayman Island on July 1, 2014
