Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Queensland / Whitsunday Islands / Whitsunday Island / Whitehaven Beach
If you could visit only one beach in the Whitsundays, it most likely would be Whitehaven Beach. One of the most photographed beaches in Australia, 7 km (4.35 mi) of soft white-silica sand on Whitsunday Island meet ocean water featuring every shade of blue. Head for Hill Inlet on the northern end to watch the tide mix sand and sea into large blue-and-white swirls. Get an overhead perspective from Tongue Point. You can join boat tours to the beach, fly above it on a seaplane or helicopter, or travel here on your own and camp for the night on the beach's southern end. Using our custom trip planner, Whitsunday Island attractions like Whitehaven Beach can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
