We boarded our boat Summertime for the start of our two night 3 day trip around the Whitsundays. The boat was quiet, clean and comfortable. The crew of Sunmertime were fantastic. Polite, friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgable. The food was always freshly prepared or cooked...More

Easily the most beautiful beach I've been to and I've been all over Europe, South America, North America, Mexico. I travelled on board a purple catamaran called Camira which was a day trip that provided everything you needed for the day including some snorkelling off...More

The most breathtaking place. The sand is so white, the beach is so pure. You'll love it. I recommend the hike to the scenic spot up the hill. It is worth the walk.

The softest sand I have ever felt it's like powder and nearly white. The sea is perfect in colour too. Shame that it was jellyfish season I fancied a dip. Just staring out over the sea is wonderful as it's like a paradise beach!

Travelled there for a morning visit with Cruise Whitsundays. We had a beautiful morning and were lucky that it was low tide. We snorkelled for about an hour and saw amazing marine life. The beach is spectacular. And the water crystal clear. A must see!!

Well worth the trip. Money well worth it. Would do it again without a doubt. The sands were so fine and you can have personal photos taken on the beach as well.

Sydney to hamilton island is about a two hour flight time. Whitehaven beach is a 45 min trip by boat. I recommend Cruise Whitsundays full day tour, so you get to see Hill inlet on the northern end of Whitehaven beach. Please... More

Whitehaven and Hamilton should be fine by then. I believe it will only be Hayman island that will remain closed until next year. Have an amazing time, it's a truly beautiful place
