Whitehaven Beach - Whitsunday Island

Whitehaven Beach often finds its way into tourist brochures as a dream destination. Its pure, white silica sand and sparkling, clear waters are especially remarkable because the beach is located on uninhabited Whitsunday Island, which only offers bush camping. The 6‑kilometre beach is a favourite anchorage for the yachting fraternity, and those without their own vessel can charter a boat from Airlie Beach and spend the day on the island (or more if camping). Scenic flights over the Whitsundays from Airlie Beach show you just how magnificent Whitehaven Beach and its surrounding scenery is. Nearby is the promontory of Tongue Point, protecting Hill Inlet, which has sand and swirls of blue water that are almost hypnotic.
