Fantastic experience. Did the half day trip - southern end of beach. That’s all you need. Beautiful beach with fine white sand. Pleasant swimming. No jellyfish seen. Spectacular blue water to match. Went for the walk to the lookout. Magnificent views of Whitsundays from there.

Great place to go and have a relax on a beautiful white beach with crystal clear waters. Go for a 10 minute walk up to the lookout and see what is around.

The sand was beautiful and the beach was long. It was however also a bit boring as there were no cliffs, reefs, nice forest or sea shells. Just sand and a lot of people.
