Catseye Beach is one of Hamilton Island’s most popular outdoor ceremony locations, boasting an iconic Whitsunday setting. With the sand underfoot and a cool sea breeze behind you, a Catseye Beach ceremony will truly complete your Hamilton Island wedding.
The exact location of your ceremony on Catseye Beach varies depending on time of year, tides, time of day and a number of other variables. Your exact ceremony location will be advised during your pre-wedding meeting.
Our styling company AVPartners offer limited chair quantity at this location, due to logistics for set up.
Catseye Beach is beautiful at both low and high tide, however most couples prefer high tide for their ceremony. The images in the gallery below will assist you in deciding if low or high tide suits you best. Remember, low and high tide times change each day so please check the tide times using the links below.
Please note that the height of low and high tide varies day to day. The below images provide an example of how low, high and in-between tides may look, however the actual height of the tides of any one day will also impact on this.
Please note that unless staying at the Beach Club resort, you and your guests are not able to access Catseye Beach through the Beach Club reception or lounge. Please ensure your guests are aware that access points to Catseye Beach include via the front of Sails Restaurant, or via the beach access pathway at the Beach Pavilion.
We recommend you include a copy of the Catseye Beach access map in your invites to guests to ensure they are aware of the correct access points.

Our elopement at Hamilton Island was a truly memorable experience. Despite the island still recovering from the effects of Cyclone Debbie, the ceremony was absolutely perfect. We were incredibly grateful for the high level of organisation and the calming nature of our wedding planner. On the day we found that the driver, photographer, celebrant and planner all contributed to make our wedding day a special, fun and enjoyable occasion.
Hamilton Island Weddings made the whole wedding planning process a breeze, they cared from when we started planning 400 days out up until the day afterwards. They were very accommodating and helpful during the cyclone clean up. Keeping us informed throughout. Our planner Amy N was exemplary and I could not recommend her highly enough.

This island has something magical about it and we will most definitely be back. Wish we could do it all again xx
We got married on Hamilton Island in May 2017, 8 weeks after Cyclone Debbie tore through the Island.

We are so lucky to have been able to get married in such a beautiful part of the world and on such a gorgeous day. It really was a day that we will never forget!
