Dingo Beach is a small township on the northern side of the Whitsunday Coast. Dingo Beach and its sister town of Hydeaway Bay are situated on Edgecumbe Bay on Cape Gloucester and boast miles of sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, bountiful fishing and plenty of opportunities to relax in the sun or kick back with a cold beverage or meal from one of the small group of beachfront pubs and eco resorts.
Dingo Beach boasts a public boat ramp on its beachfront, enabling visitors to explore the northern waters of the Whitsunday Islands which are renowned for big game fishing and excellent snorkelling. The long, sandy beach has a stinger net for swimming safety in summer and public barbecues and picnic tables dotted along the beachfront under the shady trees.
You can only get there by car, so if you didn't bring your own, hire one from the many outlets in Airlie Beach and explore one of the hidden wonders of the Whitsundays at your own pace, for a day or a few nights.
