This is the most stunning beach we have ever visited (and we have been to Hawaii, Mexico and the Caribbean). The pictures do not do it justice. And the all the stories about the Whitsunday's being in disarray following last April's Cyclone are greatly exaggerated....More

Whitehaven Beach on the Whitsunday Island in Queensland Australia was voted "Best Beach in Australia" and "Best Beach in the South Pacific" in TripAdvisor's 2016 Traveller's Choice Awards. It suffered recently from 11 metre swells during Cyclone Debbie but still an amazing place to visit....More

Went to Whitehaven beach as part of an Ocean Rafting Excursion. The beach is beautiful with very fine sand. Great for a stroll and rubbing your skin with the sand.

Fantastic trip on a comfortable boat with an informative but not boring commentary. We enjoyed ample time on the beautiful pristine beach to have a swim, walk along the beach and sunbake. Great afternoon tea was served after leaving beach with plenty of fresh muffins,...More

Sydney to hamilton island is about a two hour flight time. Whitehaven beach is a 45 min trip by boat. I recommend Cruise Whitsundays full day tour, so you get to see Hill inlet on the northern end of Whitehaven beach. Please... More

Whitehaven and Hamilton should be fine by then. I believe it will only be Hayman island that will remain closed until next year. Have an amazing time, it's a truly beautiful place
