Think about your ideal tropical getaway. What do you imagine? White sand beaches, palm trees, and a gorgeous blue ocean are likely atop your mind. Take all of that and add an amazing coral reef, and you get the Whitsunday Islands.
The islands are world-renowned for the sheer beauty of their beaches. Whitehaven Beach, located on the island for which the rest are named, is repeatedly mentioned as one of the most beautiful beaches worldwide. It's been named Australia's best beach, and the 9th most beautiful beach in the world, by the popular travel site TripAdvisor. And not just because of the beauty of the sand and the ocean: the beach is completely untouched commercially, allowing visitors to enjoy pure nature in a tropical paradise.
But you don't stay on one of the islands for long before a lust for adventure grabs you. Whether you prefer to stay on top of the water or below, sailing and diving are nowhere more fulfilling than at the Great Barrier Reef. Comprised of almost 3000 individual reef systems, the Reef - a UNESCO World Heritage Site - the Reef is home to some of the world's most treasured sea creatures, from humpback whales to sea turtles and clown fish. If you think Finding Nemo was colourful, try diving through the area after which the movie was modelled.
For the land-bound among visitors, the Whitsunday Islands offer plenty of opportunities to still your thirst. From gorgeous waterfalls to a lush rain forest, guided and unguided tours will make you appreciate nature more than you ever have before. Our tip: rent a mini 4WD, and go exploring through that nature. It's the perfect antidote to restlessness incurred on a breathtaking beach.
