Fantastic trip to Whitehaven Beach with Cruise Whitsundays. The package included cruising to a few of the islands for pickups, snorkelling, which was straight off the beach all equipment provided, fish all around, many colours shapes and sizes. The coral was beautiful, wavering in the azure water, so many colours and shades. A barbecue on the beach, well cooked and... More

Are you stressed? Need a breather? Wait! Do you need your breath taken away??? Get yourself here. The human-to-nature relationship and the serenity of this unmanned island is just spectacular. Remember- it is a national park. Be at peace with the nature around you. And keep your memories of this beautiful beach and island always. I would say- it is... More

Is a place where you have to go. That beach is completely amazing. I went by boat and by plane as well and that was one of my best moment in my live.

I had the absolute pleasure of anchoring around the corner in a small inlet while on a bare boat yacht charter. To walk on this beach early morning and completely deserted was an amazing and inspiring experience

What a magnificent beach to visit - and the fact that it is untouched adds to its beauty. Fabulous white sand, beautiful blue water - and not a shop, or building or any signs of modern day to be seen. Highly recommend if you want a blissfully tranquil beach visit.

Whitehaven Beach is known to be one of the most beautiful in eastern Australia. I've not seen that many of them, but this one gets my vote! We rode over from Hamilton Island on a small snorkel boat owned by Reef Rider. Our 3-hour tour for $90/adult included our snorkel gear, fins, and stinger suits. We first went to Chalkie's... More

This was our second visit to Whitehaven Beach & was still as breathtaking. Whether you want to go for a walk to the lookout, swim, snorkel or just lay around on the soft sand. As soon as we get off the boat we always head straight to where the trees are to secure a spot when you need a little... More

My husband and I were on a tour of the Great Barrier Reef when suddenly the pilot swung around and the most gorgeous beach island came into view: sparkling white sand with various hues of green and turquoise water swirling through the sand. I gasped at the matchless vista and I said, "This is the most beautiful beach I've ever... More
