If you’re planning a Whitsunday Islands trip, you don’t want to miss the magic of Whitehaven Beach. This incredible location is a must see on any Whitsundays holiday. Whitehaven Beach is the true site of the iconic tropical image – warm sun, bright blue oceans, and white sand that goes on for miles. When you imagine relaxing on a tropical getaway, you’re imagining Whitehaven Beach.
The recipient of multiple awards, including the most eco-friendly beach, Whitehaven Beach is known across the world for its iconic beauty. Located along the coast of Whitsunday Island, Whitehaven Beach stretches for 7 kilometres, and is a popular location for locals and tourists alike.
But what makes Whitehaven Beach so magical? It’s not just its incredible blue waters, but also the white silica sand that is unique to this area. The sand is 98% pure silica, which gives it the magical white colour and makes it cool to the touch, even under the tropical sun. Find out for yourself on your Whitsunday Islands trip as you wiggle your toes in the cool sand before jumping in the crystal blue waters.
Whitehaven Beach is accessible by boat, seaplane or helicopter from Airlie Beach, but the best way to visit is as part of a boat tour. Hop on board a catamaran at Airlie Beach and explore the best of the Whitsunday Islands.
