Langford island & REEF

Langford Island is another popular Whitsunday stop. Yachts pick up a mooring just 250 metres from the beach and guests transfer in the small tender. Langford has a slim area of beach surrounded by a fringing coral reef to the north and the south. The sand goes from being nearly fully covered when the tide is high to being over 1000 metres long when the tide is low.

It is exciting to get to Langford Island after the tide has washed over and be the first person to leave footprints in the sand. Turtles cruise up and down the length of the beach, sometimes just a few metres from the beach and it is a great opportunity to go for a snorkel and see the turtles. Langford is also a great location to watch the sunset over the ocean. Imagine relaxing on the beach, having an afternoon snack and enjoying a drink all while watching the sunset over the water. 

In 2018, a new walk up to a viewing platform was built at the eastern side of Langford Island. This is an easy walk up the track and onto the platform. Once at the platform a pleasant surprise is the Whitsunday Bottle Tree, a native tree only found in the Whitsundays. These trees grow to 12 metres in height with a wide trunk that stores water, similar to a Boab Tree. The view from the lookout extends across the passage of water between Hook Island and Hayman Island with Black Island in the foreground.
