Picturesque Whitehaven Beach is one of the Whitsundays premier natural attractions - five miles (seven kilometers) of glistening white silica sand complemented by crystal clear waters. Located on Whitsunday Island, the largest island in the region, Whitehaven Beach is fully protected and uninhabited due to its National and Marine Park status. Its shallows are graced by various species of turtles, and these ancient creatures are often sighted during daily visits.
Swim in the crystal clear waters, take a leisurely walk along the pristine beach, join in the beach games or just relax and soak up the sunshine.

My only regret is that I only booked a half-day trip. I wish I could have stayed longer! The beach is absolutely gorgeous!! There aren and #39;t any amenities there... So you need to pack what you need (and take it with you when you go) but I could have stayed all day! You won and #39;t regret it!!

Everything about this trip was great. The crew was wonderful and we had plenty of time to explore Whitehaven Beach. I should have done better research ahead of time, though, because the truly iconic part of Whitehaven Beach is the Hill Inlet. On the half day cruise, you miss the Hill Inlet part. I would recommend booking the full day cruise so that you don't miss out on the Hill Inlet if that is important to you.
