Hayman Island Resort

Queensland, Australia

Walkways and lounge areas crisscross the Hayman Pool -- one of the largest in Australia -- at the Hayman Resort in the stunning collection of 74 Whitsunday Islands in the heart of Great Barrier Reef. The resort itself has 210 accommodation options, ranging from rooms to beach houses, all of which have private patios and balconies. On Hayman Beach, framed by regal palms, snorkeling is possible in the crystal waters right off the sugary shorelines. Hayman guests can also explore the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef by boat or seaplane.
