A beautiful boutique located along the board walk in the Shingley Beach precinct (past the Abel Point Marina). Paya offers great selection of womens' fashion labels, fashion accessories such as shoes, handbags and jewellery as well as homewares and gifts.
This is just the best boutique in Airlie Beach! It's like an Alladin's cave of gorgeousness and everywhere you turn something new and fascinating catches your eye. Sarah, the owner, explained that she is the sole QLD distributor for the Wheels & Dollbaby brand and the stuff she stocks is awesome. I went in for a browse and walked out with a pair of limited edition jeans (for me) a rock t-shirt for my hubby AND a wee gift for my mum. Do not miss this shopping experience in Airlie Beach - it's in Pavilion Arcade opposite Easy Cafe!
What to buy: If you're looking for something bit special and definitely not chain store then you'll find it here!
Clearly the most beautiful boutique in Airlie Beach. Located in the nice precinct of Shingley Beach (near the marina), this boutique offers a mix of fashion outfits, fashion accessories, jewellery as well as homewares and gifts. Lots of designer labels and carefully selected items for your home. I love it! A very pleasant change from the tacky souvenir shops found in the main street of Airlie Beach......
What to buy: fashion, fashion accessories, homewares, gifts, shoes, jewellery, handbags, wallets,
What to pay: from $10 to $1,000+
Every Saturday they hold the popular Airlie Beach Markets. They are located at the southern end of the beach on the esplanade.
Paved walkways and shady palms make it easy to stroll around and you will find a huge selection of merchandise on sale.
What to buy: Jewellery, sarongs and clothing, local arts and crafts, homemade soaps, plants, fruits and vegetables...
What to pay: Prices are comparible with other markets.
The main street is lined with lots of shops...all very colourful and enticing. You will be kept busy for hours browsing around even if you don't buy anything.
What to buy: Take your pick...clothing, shoes, beach wear, sunglasses, jewellery, arts and crafts, antiques...
There is also a supermarket.
What to pay: Probably a little more expensive than usual.
There are more goods for sale on the footpath outside the shop than inside. It gives life to the main street and it is amazing to see how many people stop and buy. I needed to buy a hat for sun protection and had no problems finding one here.
What to pay: Goods are reasonably priced for a tourist destination.
Any surf shop that you go into along Shute Harbour will be extreamly pricey. The reason purely being that The Whitsundays is a very touristy destination and they can mark the prices up on things you could buy at home for 40% less. Just be careful and dont over indulge when you get there.
What to pay: Depending on what you buy......
You can`t stop chicks shopping.
Airlie although a small community had everything we wanted and more and there is a large supermarket just outside of town.
