2 Days
Whitsunday Islands

Are you busy planning your Whitsundays tour and thinking that a Whitsunday Island resort is going to smash your travel budget?

Well this overnight Whitsunday Island trip on Ride To Paradise is the perfect way to enjoy all the island luxury for much less than you’d think!

You’ll join the team from Red Cat Adventures and discover all the must see spots that the Whitsundays has to offer – including Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet Lookout (get your camera ready for that one!) and of course the abundance of beautiful snorkelling spots along the way.

After a day packed with travel memories you’ll head to the stunning Paradise Cove Resort – where you’ll kick back and enjoy all the facilities this island has to offer.

Go for a dip in the pool, enjoy a relaxing walk along the private beaches or just wind down on island time in one of the many hammocks.

For solo travellers the shared rooms offer incredible value – with spacious dorms, or couples can treat themselves to one of the private room options, which include the incredible Dream Villa for the ultimate Whitsundays resort luxury.

And if you want to experience the Whitsundays from a different perspective why not go all out with a 70 minute option which offers views across Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet, Langford Sandbar and the world famous Heart Reef?!

This is 2 days of island relaxation, stunning views and flashpacker comfort!

Got more time to play with?

Why not opt for the 2 night option instead and enjoy paradise a little longer!
