Whitehaven Beach

Whitehaven Beach in the Whitsundays off Australia’s Central Coast surely deserves its name. Found on Whitsunday Island, the pristine white beach stretches for seven glorious kilometres, and the clear aqua waters are warm and welcoming. The dazzling colour of the sand is a result of high pure silica content, and theories abound as to why. Whether sea currents brought the sand to the Whitehaven Beach or the silica seeped upwards through the earth as plate tectonics rubbed together, visitors reap the rewards. Sailing, swimming, and snorkelling are popular activities, as is lounging on the unique beach.

  • See up close the eye-catching swirling colours caused by the turquoise waters meeting the white sand at Hill Inlet, a cove located in the northern part of Whitehaven Beach.
  • Enjoy a yacht or catamaran cruise around the 74 islands that comprise the Whitsundays, and see the stunning Barrier Reef as well as the abundant marine life in the area, including dolphins, porpoises, and whales.
  • Hike up to the Tongue Point lookout for the best views of the beach and its striking blend of colours and of the Whitsundays chain of islands.

The Whitsunday Coast (Proserpine) Airport and Hamilton Island Airport receive air passengers to the Whitsundays. Easily accessible from the airports are several boating and tour companies that can take travellers to Whitsunday Island. Additionally, many cruise operators in the area offer daytrips out to Whitehaven Beach. Visitors can also get around the Whitsundays by chartering seaplanes or taking a helicopter flight, which also offer unbeatable aerial views of the white-sand beach, coral reefs, and surrounding islands.
