Tis the season to be merry and this weekend we were fortunate enough to be invited to a beach rental in beautiful Hideaway Bay.
It's about a 40 minute drive from Airlie Beach and worth every minute of the journey.
The views are amazing.
A great party house right on the beach, with two sleeping areas separated by a deck, big enough to accommodate 3 families and a bunch of other visitors that camped in another lounge room.
A little beach shack to while away the hours in.
Morning sea side stroll.
The Christmas spirit (heh heh).
Stunning views of all that aqua water.
Views from the beach.
Right in the middle of nowhere is the coolest resort complete with an outdoor bar, restaurant and a salt water pool to marinate in.
Or in our case this weekend, to escape the March Flies that go absolutely mental around the Whitsundays this time of year.
The spread at the Christmas table.
The Oar Restaurant really out did themselves with their seafood platters.
Make sure you put it down as a 'must do' if you're ever in the area.
