“Totally beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

The softest sand I have ever felt it's like powder and nearly white. The sea is perfect in colour too. Shame that it was jellyfish season I fancied a dip. Just staring out over the sea is wonderful as it's like a paradise beach!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

As the previous reviews state, Whitehaven beach is a must visit when traveling in this area. This beach is deserving of one of the best in the world and the view from the inlet is amazing. High tide is less impressive than low tide but is worth seeing for sure.

“You need to go here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We were on a boat (as you usually are in the Whitsundays!) and docked outside of Whitehaven overnight. Around 6am, our captain starting bringing us over. We were THE ONLY people on the beach! It was beyond breathtaking. Afterwards, we moved to the lookout point where you see the swirls of water and sand create art. It's one of the most incredible places I've ever been.

“Whitehaven is everything you here about and more.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

Travelled there for a morning visit with Cruise Whitsundays. We had a beautiful morning and were lucky that it was low tide. We snorkelled for about an hour and saw amazing marine life. The beach is spectacular. And the water crystal clear. A must see!!

“Superb view. Gorgeous islands”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Well worth the trip. Money well worth it. Would do it again without a doubt. The sands were so fine and you can have personal photos taken on the beach as well.
