You can also take advantage of the short bushwalk through the island up to Hill Inlet Lookout for the famous view of the swirling sands below - one of the best places in the Whitsundays to take stunning photos! This beach and lookout combo is one of the most sought after destinations in the Whitsundays and with good reason!
