Hamilton or Heron Island but also WhiteSundays (Whitehaven)

Hello !

We have 4 full days to end our Trip to Australia and I'm with doubts what to do !

For sure we want to go to WhiteSundays to see Whitehaven beach but it must be in a tour right ? One day ? 1/2 day ? I saw some options of going and sleeping there in a boat ?

Stay@ Hamilton Island or Heron Island ?

- Despite choosing each island is still possible and almost the same price to go from there to WhiteSundays ?

Thanks for your help

PS: if anyone know a better option please share it :)

Heron will not get you to Whitehaven. Totally too far away.

There are lots of options for tours as you said so pick the itinerary with the best fit, more choice from Airlie than Hammo but if you want an island stay then Hammo is the location

Edited to add.. Hammo is in the whitsundays Heron is in the northern Bunker group of island

Ok, maybe the Hamilton Island should be our best option because we want to check Whitehaven beach ?

We're thinking on staying at Palm Bungalows (tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g255085-d2878…) 4 days (2 for walk around and the other 2 for 2 tours (reef and the beach)
