Langford & Stonehaven

Stonehaven Bay and Langford Reef are two of the more beautiful anchorages in the Whitsundays due to their proximity to some of the best snorkelling spots in the area. Perfectly positioned to allow for a smooth sail from Airlie Beach you only need travel 16 miles before arriving at your destination, allowing more time to enjoy the underwater coral gardens of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Dotted close by are the islands of Hayman, Black, Hook, Bird and Arkhurst making for a stunning and picturesque view over the coral sea.


Langford Island is directly opposite the famous Hayman Island resort. As a small island its beauty lies in the long and narrow sandspit that connects with the island at low tide. Along this narrow sandpit is fringing reef and a popular spot of green sea turtles. There is also a small walk up to a little lookout with an Australian Bottle Tree at the top.


Stonehaven Bay is one of the larger bays in the area and comprises of multiple snorkel spots from Cockatoo point, anchor point, the keyhole and Baird point. Its west facing aspect also makes it a great option on windier days creating a sheltered and calm bay in the lee of the predominant south-easterly trade winds.
