Hydeaway Bay Beach

Phone: 4945 3711


Hydeaway Bay Beach is on the coast of the Whitsundays, around 45 minutes drive north of the tourist town of Airlie Beach. The beach at Hydeaway Bay is a lovely sandy beach over 1.5 kilometres long. Covering the beachfront area along the main street, Hydeaway Bay Drive, beachfront homes make excellent use of the direct beach access and endless views across the water to Gloucester Island, Saddleback Island and many more. Dotted along between the houses are several beach access ways for the public to gain access to this beautiful stretch of soft, sandy beach. The beach is fringed with shady trees and the rocks at the end make for excellent exploring. The fishing from the beach can be quite successful but there is a boat ramp at Dingo Beach, just around the other side of the headland, if you'd like to try your luck offshore.

A little convenience store at the Hydeaway Bay Caravan Park is the only shop in town, but there is a pub at Dingo Beach and two beachside restaurants/ eco resorts at Cape Gloucester, just at the northern end of Hydeaway Bay.
