Blue Pearl Bay

Located on the north-western side of Hayman Island are the iridescent waters of  Blue Pearl Bay. 

Immerse yourself in crystal clear waters, where batfish surround your boat to greet you while turtles drift below. Recognized for its impeccable coral and thriving marine life, Blue Pearl Bay is the ideal destination for a snorkel or a dive. With a diving depth reaching 18 meters, and visibility ranging from 3 to 15 meters, you'll be in awe at the world below. Amongst the marine life, you'll get the opportunity to meet George, a resident Maori Humphead Wrasse which is known to grow as long as 2m.

Protected by the Marine National Park Green Zone, you can trust that every inch of this bay is in pristine condition. Similarly, the beach itself is sheltered by the hills above, protecting it from the wind, making it an excellent place for an afternoon siesta! Follow one of the hiking trails from the beach, that will lead you up the hill to breathtaking 360-degree views.

The stunning reef coupled with towering hills will leave you astonished, so be sure to add Blue Pearl Bay to your Whitsunday bucket list.
