A little bit of paradise....

The space

Our Hydeaway Bay Beach Hut is located on the absolute beach front at Hydeaway Bay at the Whitsundays.

The hut is bright, clean, open plan and sleeps a maximum of three adults and two children. (Queen bed, single bed & a camp stretcher). It has a lovely relaxed feel and is a great place to unwind, play old fashioned board games, bbq and enjoy the beautiful beach surroundings. We rely on rain water so it is really important to use water carefully.

Just off the foreshore is coral reef, on a very low tide you can walk quite a distance out and see colourful corals, sea cucumbers, clams and other creatures. There are lots of sea turtles in the area, and you can see whales in winter. People enjoy fishing off the beach. There are kangaroos in the area, so you need to be especially careful driving at dawn and dusk. There are also lots of birds - look for the bush turkey nest right next to the escarpment, there's also kookaburras, owls, cockatoos, parrots, sea eagles just to name a few. You might see Dingos too. The water is often glassy flat and crystal clear - perfect for snorkelling or going out paddling in our Canadian canoe. (You can swim all winter, in summer in North Queensland, there are stingers (jellyfish) so it is safer to wear stinger suits (or pantyhose works fine) when swimming or swim in the enclosure at Dingo Beach.

Hydeaway Bay is a beach community made up of retirees and holiday homes. It is about 45 minutes drive north of Airlie Beach (50 km), and 40 minutes east of Proserpine. It is just a few minutes drive from neighbouring Dingo Beach. The Dingo Beach Pub provides meals, petrol, convenience store and bait. There is a boat ramp at Dingo, and you can hire fishing boats from there. There is a caravan park at Hydeaway Bay which sells bread and milk and other small items. There is also community hall where there is a tennis court for hire, and you might catch a zumba class if you’re up early. There are two resorts within a few minutes drive, Cape Gloucester Eco Resort & Montes Reef Resort which face Gloucester Island. Both places serve lovely restaurant meals (seafood is a speciality), and there is nothing quite like a cocktail watching the sun go down. The eco-resort has a lovely pool for year round swimming by the outside bar area.

We recommend you buy your supplies (groceries and drinks) in Proserpine or at Cannonvale (Airlie Beach) before you drive out to the hut. In Proserpine the IGA is the newish grocery store, in Cannonvale there is a big Woolworths (inside a shopping centre with other shops/liquor/chemist/butcher and so on) If you are shopping in Proserpine you should take some time out to visit the fun homewares/everything else store called “Colour Me Crazy” – ask anyone in Prossie where it is and they can give you directions – it’s worth the trip. There are a number of restaurants in Airlie Beach, and this is also the departure point for charter boat trips out to the Islands / Reef from.

There is a big mango tree beside the water tank, if you are here in the summer you can pick and enjoy our lovely bowen special mangos!

Please feel free to contact me to tell me about yourself and let me know what you are looking for - maybe you will be perfect for the hut and the hut perfect for you!

The host had been helpful and responsive. I enjoyed the stay as it is located by the private beach. Wish I could spend more nights. Recommended

Hydeaway Bay Beach Hut was a one of a kind experience. During our time there, we had a couple days where there was low tide. We were able to walk out far into the ocean (the water at its highest was below our knees) and see giant clams, different corals, sea cucumbers, etc! We even ran into locals who told us about sand jewels (little snails with the most beautiful designs on its shell). We spent countless hours finding them and admiring their beauty! It was an amazing experience to have all this in "our backyard" so to speak! There aren't many people on the beach - it's almost like having your own private beach! The hut was clean and comfortable too. We loved our time here.

The cottage is right on the beach so we got to see some beautiful sunrises. The water was crystal clear at high tide for swimming and we did see a few turtles. Montes resort is a 4.5klm drive for lunch on the beach with a beautiful outlook over the bay. If you want beach walks, swimming and recharge your batteries, this is the place to come!

hideaway bay is the perfect spot for a complete getaway - not much to do except enjoy the sunshine and the beach, RJ's place is spot on for relaxing and has a great beach vibe, having access to the canoe was also great!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ryl's beach hut. It has everything you need and a location that is 2nd to none. Keep an eye out for the resident goanna (I think...) that wanders in at around 4pm each afternoon to take up his residence in the awning above the back door. He's a pretty cool character. As everyone else has said, Ryl's communication is 1st class.
