Located in the eastern part of the island of Whitsunday Island, Whitehaven Beach is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Our favorite activity: Sailing adventure in the Whitsundays Islands and Whitehaven beach
7 km long, it is absolutely free of any human presence or construction, and is practically only accessible by boat.
The sand there is so white and pure (98% pure silica) that it was used to make the Hubble telescope lens!!
It is transported directly by sea currents from the other part of the Australian coast.
The waters are very calm and incredibly transparent.
You just want to stay LA!
A single black spot in paradise, from December to March, during the "stingers" season (small jellyfish 1 to 5 cm in diameter, the sting of which can be fatal!), it is strongly recommended to swim with a full wetsuit to avoid bites… and sunburn!
Most multi-day cruises departing from Airlie Beach stop at Whitehaven Beach.
It is also possible to take a day trip with a faster boat. Inquire at Airlie Beach.
