Airlie Beach is a small coastal locality in the Whitsunday Region of Queensland, Australia.
The Clipper Restaurant Bar and Lounge is regarded as one of Airlie Beach's best restaurants. Located at the Coral Sea Resort, this upmarket restaurant has endless views of the Coral Sea and Whitsunday Islands. Fish D’vine and Rum Bar offers fresh seafood and more than 500 rums from around the world. Choose from more than 800 beers and ciders at Denman Cellars Beer Café or watch the boats on the water over a cool drink at the Whitsunday Sailing Club.
The Whitsundays are among the most magical sailing destinations in the world, and many sailing tours are offered from Airlie Beach, aboard everything from luxury cabin cruisers to bareboat charters on which you sail a yacht yourself.
Whitehaven Beach is renowned for having some of the whitest sand in the world and is a must-visit from Airlie Beach. See the highlights of the Whitsundays, including the romantic Heart Reef, from the windows of a seaplane or helicopter with Air Whitsunday or Cruise Whitsundays. If you want an adrenaline rush, tandem skydive with an expert over the islands of the Great Barrier Reef and land on Airlie Beach with Skydive Airlie Beach.
Between the palm-fringed beach and the main street is a huge man-made lagoon where you can swim all year round. Lifeguards are on duty during daylight hours. There's a kids' pool and the surrounding parkland has lots of shade and free barbecues. It's like having your own five-star resort pool.
