More About Whitehaven Beach, Australia

Why not a trip to:

Whitehaven Beach, Australia

If you’re planning a trip to the Whitsundays, you’d be remiss not to make the effort to visit the world-famous Whitehaven Beach. Known for its clear turquoise water, breathtaking views of the unique and magical swirling sands of Hill Inlet, and the feel of the finest white sand you will ever have the pleasure of walking on. But there is so much more to this gem, which is regularly voted the best beach in the world. Whitehaven Beach, located on Whitsunday Island in the Whitsundays has a colourful indigenous history, a unique array of flora and fauna, and some pretty intriguing myths.

Each year, over 75,000 visitors grace the island, but step foot on it you would never know. As part of the World Heritage Great Barrier Reef National Marine Park (A.K.A., GBR), this beach is pristine national parkland, and only vessels and small scenic aircraft carrying permits have access. Most tours are eco-certified, and there is no infrastructure save for a few toilet blocks and boarded walking tracks.
