Pristine, pure, perfect – the silica sand here is dazzlingly white, washed in on the tide over thousands of years. Located on the largest island in The Whitsundays, Whitehaven Beach offers up 7km of shore to explore – swim, snorkel, laze on the sand or even take a hike through the forest to an ocean lookout or secret swimming spot: your time here can be as energetic or relaxed as you’d like it to be. Don’t miss the walk to the spectacular viewpoint over Hill Inlet at Whitehaven’s northern end, where a swirl of white sand and turquoise water fuse to create a stunning blend of colours.
Cruise Whitsundays runs a range of full and half-day cruises to Whitehaven Beach.
FROM 1 JANUARY 2020: A Daydream Island resort fee will be added to transfers outside of house guests and day tours. The fee will be added to any bookings without accommodation or outside of day tours at $38 per adult and $19 per child.
