what a view
at the Tongue Point Outlook
the white sand is pure quartz
the wet landing at Hill Inlet beach
but finally it's our turn
in the afternoon we return to Shute Harbor near Airlie Beach
view to the northeast
To the north the tidal whirls in the Hill Inlet create an ever shifting hue of white sand, azure
and turquoise waters with a deep blue sky above. Its beauty is just stunning.
There is an outlook at Tongue Point from where
you can observe this magnificent natural panorama.
Access to the beach is by boat only, most operators work from Shute Harbor
near Airlie Beach., some combine it with a nice relaxed shallow dive in one of the island's northern lagunas.
We were at the
Hill Inlet in October 2004 and found it to be one of the most beautyful places we have ever been.
