Encompassing 74 tropical islands, the Whitsundays boast a warm, balmy climate all year round. The vibrant seaside town of Airlie Beach is the ideal base from which to explore the islands and offers a beautiful lagoon, an array of restaurants, and many lively bars.

Numerous tours depart Airlie Beach daily and allow you to sail the Whitsundays Passage, snorkel the reefs, or visit the iconic Whitehaven Beach.

To spend a couple of days on a tropical island, enjoy resort-style living on Hamilton Island or family-friendly accommodation on Daydream Island. With a hotel in Airlie Beach, Mantra offers Whitsunday accommodation at the gateway to the islands.

A gateway to the Whitsundays, Airlie Beach is a lively holiday destination set on the palm-fringed beaches of Pioneer Bay. Relax by the lagoon on the foreshore, cruise the Whitsundays Passage, or let your hair down at one of Airlie’s many popular nightspots. There’s no better base from which to discover the Whitsundays.
