Absolutely beautiful day, there was so much time to make it a really relaxing day, no rush just a nice steady pace.

We went on the Fantasea Whitehaven Beach Experience - baiscally a ferry with a burger and 90 minutes on a cold and crowded beach.
Although the sun was shining when we left and was about 21 degrees, by the time we got the the beach - about an hour, it was overcast and then started to rain, but you couldn't get back on the ferry ( as it had pulled off the beach and moored oof to shore) so just sat in the rian - there were about 20 other ferry/catamarans/boats at the south end of the beach - where they drop you off with the warning don't walk down the beach or you won't get ack in time - so why bother advertising the lovely white sands, 7 kilometres of beach strecthing before you and the feeling you are on a deserted island - I'm sorry but there were at least 300 people on that beach.
We both felt we could have spent the $230.00 better. Like at any beach on the Coste del Sol or Cote d'azur - at least you get a towel and bar service.
Beware - if you are infirm or need helping getting about, don't go, you will have a devil of a time crawling through the front hatch ( Watch your head!) and then cilmbing down the steel ladder into the surf into about a metre of water to walk on to the beach ( there is no other way on) - they fail to mention everywhere that you have to pull your shorts/jeans/dress up to your high thighs or get soaked - nice to know this stuff in advance, but no, not mentioned till you are on your way.Really poor form.
