Whitehaven Beach

Whether you get here by boat, seaplane or helicopter, you’ll be mesmerized by your first glimpse of Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island. Not surprisingly, with its impossibly white silica sand (said to be among the whitest on earth), turquoise-hued water and stunningly beautiful natural backdrop, the beach is consistently named one of the best in the world. Stroll along the pristine powdery sand, take a dip in the azure Coral Sea, and don’t miss the short hike to Hill Inlet, at Whitehaven’s northern end, where you’ll be awestruck by how the swirling white sand fuses with the inlet’s green-blue hues, all framed by distant peaks on the horizon.
