The boat will glide onto the sand and you can climb down and make your way across the beach to the breathtaking resort that is waiting for your exclusive use.
After a detailed tour of the exclusive resort you will be shown to your room. You have a few spare hours before dinner that can be filled however you like. Play pool, tennis, paddleboard, kayak, walk on the beach, play football, chill by the pool and spa and or simply relax in a hammock and take in the tranquillity of Paradise Cove.
Enjoy chicken curry for dinner before the crew lights a fire down on the beach and you can try your hand at roasting some marshmallows. After counting shooting stars you can head back to your room and fall asleep to the sounds of nature.
On your second day, wake up and head down to the main house for a continental breakfast and fruit salad before packing your dry bag and heading off on a Whitsundays adventure!
Wildcat will depart at approx. 8am to visit Whitehaven Beach and the amazing Hill Inlet Lookout. Enjoy a quick bushwalk up to Hill Inlet Lookout for one of the most amazing views in the world, before checking out the famous silica sands of Whitehaven Beach.
