Airlie Beach Lagoon Reviews & Ratings
Wonderful place to take your children. Beautiful location and atmosphere and a great alternative as the beach at Airlie beach is muddy. You have got the shops behind it and the Whitsunday Islands in front of it. It can get a bit crowded but always good for a swim. Life guards do patrol and there is also a kiddy pool. Best place to cool down in Airlie.
Very nice but oh so hot. Don't recommend to visit in summer. Forgotten how hot the tropics are, used to live in the tropics a long time ago!
Great place for kids and adults. Pretty lagoon with different depths for different age groups. No swimming in the ocean as there are sharks and stingers. Very high chlorine in the pools which may hurt or temporarily damage the eyes. Great places to eat around yet very high prices as it is a tourist destination.
Nice lagoon overlooking the sea, perfect for a hot day. Surrounded by shops, bars restaurants and tour shops, it's full of things to do. Multiple lagoons at different depths too which is nice to sit in when it gets really hot.
Great time relaxing at the free pool/lagoon after an activity
