Introducing Long Island

Relax under the palm trees on the white coral sand beach or stroll the 20km of bush trails that criss-cross the island and lead to beautiful secluded beaches.

Spot life under the water such as dolphins, turtles and tropical fish, as well as land wildlife including goannas and wallabies. Activities offered by the island’s resorts include snorkelling, diving, water skiing, parasailing and sailing.


Long Island offers three resorts set in idyllic settings and located far from each other.

Choose from the 3-star Long Island Resort, surrounded by rainforest on a sheltered bay; the intimate, secluded 4.5-star Peppers Palm Bay Whitsundays, with just 21 stylish bures nestling amid a grove of tropical palms; or the 5-star Paradise Bay Island Resort, an exclusive adults-only resort surrounded by rainforest and set on a private beach.
