Hill Inlet, Whitsunday Island

4.9
#2 of 9 in Parks in Whitsunday Islands
Pure-white sands and vibrant blue waters make Hill Inlet one of the most visited tourist spots in the area. The inlet is located at the northern end of Whitehaven Beach, part of the Whitsunday Islands National Park. Best viewed from the lookout at Tongue Point, the inlet's white sands and blue waters blend seamlessly to create a sight most visitors describe as nothing short of breathtaking. You can take a boat to Tongue Bay and then make the short uphill walk to the point's lookout, but try to be there when the tide is low to experience this unusual fusion of colors. For those preferring a view from high above, helicopter and seaplane tours are also available.

  • visited in August 2016 I totally recommend a tour of the Whitsundays which includes Hill Inlet, the bluff overlooking Whitehaven Beach. The boat leaves at the beginning of a short trail that goes up in the middle of the vegetation (you are in a park, so there are almost no structures built) not leaving portend what you will see from the belvedere. Truly an unforgettable view, although us, traveling at the end of the Australian winter, we unfortunately took a heavy downpour just arrived at the top of the Hill. The colors were not those from clear sky, but even so the sand was very white and turquoise sea. Fantastic designs that sand is crystalline water surfacing

  • This was the highlight of our trip. Never seen anything like this beach. Swimmers paradise. The water is clear blue just like the pictures.  more »
  • I visited this beach with boat and made the planned ascent to the top of the hill where there is a spectacular loockout. You can enjoy the magnificent view on the white sandy beaches, turquoise waters and lush surrounding islands. The ascent of course at high noon has some difficulty but it was worth it.
