Relax & Rejuvenate

Delve into wellness, with soothing massages and revitalizing spa treatments or immerse yourself in Vinyasa yoga classes located in various hidden spots around the resort! Why not relax by the lagoon pool? Featuring cabanas, sun beds and private nooks there is no better place to enjoy a cocktail and the amazing Whitsunday views!

Walking Trails & Beaches

Hayman Island’s two-hour Walking Trail begins at the marina and finishes at the bottom of Hayman Residences. The trail sees guests hike around the island's perimeter via Blue Pearl Bay, Dolphin Point and Butterfly Grove. Bushwalking experience is recommended as the tracks can be long, rough and very steep.

HOT TIP: Wake up at 5.30am to embark on the trail and see the sunrise before the mid-morning sun arrives!

Located on 400-hectares and views are far as the eyes can see we highly recommend adding in some beach time! Soak up the sun by day and watch the sunset below the horizon by night. As the night sky begins to appear, prepare for some of the most epic stargazing around!

Where to Eat

Capturing the essence of The Whitsundays local flavour, Hayman Island offers distinct dining experiences. The resorts signature restaurant and bar Pacific offers modern Australian cuisine with assisted buffet breakfast and a sophisticated a la carte menu. Experience Mediterranean influence at Amici where theatrical chefs plate up dishes before your eyes! Located by the Infinity pool is Bam Bam, where you will be treated to bold and zesty Pan-Asian meals with a fresh Aussie twist.

HOT TIP: Pop by the Aqua poolside bar and try the fish tacos!

Water Activities

You are in The Whitsundays! And the water is rarely cold, so why not indulge in some snorkelling or try your hand at sailing a catamaran? Throw in a line for a spot of fishing or jump on a canoe and explore the island on your own time.
