Sail to Whitehaven Beach

Owning Australian beach-survey superlatives like Best and Cleanest, Whitehaven is just that: a white haven. Ninety-eight percent of the sand is white silica, giving the seven-kilometer (four-mile) beach the appearance of sifted flour. Do as the locals do and enjoy the 30-minute ride via sailboat; the 14-meter (47-foot) yacht Ricochet offers small-group snorkeling tours as well as custom charters that visit Hill Inlet, where pure white sand mixes with teal water to create a mesmerizing marble effect.
