Long Island Resorts
One of only two Whitsunday islands to boast two distinct resorts, Long Island also has the advantage of being the closest island to the Whitsunday mainland and its nightlife, shopping, and health services.
The highly specialised Paradise Bay Eco Escape caters for only 24 adults at any one time. If you want perfect tranquillity, with the highest priority on all things natural (and undisturbed by skylarking children or day trippers, this is the place for you. Your "no footprint" journey begins with a jaw-dropping helicopter trip across to the island covered in the all-inclusive tarrif where you will set down on palm-fringed white sand, just steps from your private beachfront bungalow. Paradise Bay has achieved that rare balance between dedicated eco-friendly services and excellence in creature comforts. Even the most discerning guests are delighted by the ambience, comfort and style of their quarters.
The resort makes extensive use of fresh rainwater, natural gas, and solar power. If you are searching for an exclusive, nature-oriented, highly personal experience which allows a private connection to pristine tropical greenery, friendly local wildlife, and brilliant coral-terraced waters, then Paradise Bay Eco Escape is the perfect solution.
Alternatively, the Long Island Resort provides a thriving atmosphere for nature-lovers of all ages and interests. The outstanding feature of this fun getaway is its relaxed and casual atmosphere and the plethora of activities available. Modern wide-windowed and spacious cabins are nestled amongst the best tropical island settings with half opening directly to hammocks strung between palms on the fine sands of the beach. Behind, more cabins are snuggly coddled into privacy amid giant cicads, stands of ginger, kentia palms and beautifully tended gardens.
Long Island Resort offers numerous water sports in the surrounding sheltered waters of the bay, it's own in-ground pool for littlies and revellers, snorkelling tours of the surrounding reef, and many kilometres of bush walking tracks which show off the best vantage points of the surrounding national park.
The massive restaurant sports both excellent buffet-style cuisine and a la carte specials...anything can be arranged. And if you're not completely spent by dark, the nightly entertainment program includes live music, karaoke evenings and regular dances and themed beach parties. Come one, come all!
