Best day by far in our Whitsunday holiday. Ocean Rafting's super fast boats and great crew made the day absolutely amazing. The climb to the lookout at Hill Inlet and the view is one of a kind, and no wonder it is top 3 photo places in Australia.

White heaven beach is undoubtedly the best beach in the world, having visited over 90 Countries in my lifetime and i have seen almost all the top rated beaches in the world. This one stands out from the rest. It's been a month already, the softness of the snow looking sand with 99% silica still remains fresh in my memories,... More

The visited this beach on a Cruise Whitsunday tour, which is one of many ways you can get there. The beach is one of the cleanest beaches I have been too, just pure fine white sands, not even shells on the beach. We also did snorkeling at a nearby reef, but water quality was not as clear as expected. It... More

As you can see in the picture,there were a lot of clouds while I was taking picture... More

There will appear some kinds of animals, such as dolphin, whale... More

I flew over it in a seaplane and from the air you could see swirls of pure white sand, crystal turquoise water and little islands of coral reefs around it. We landed on it (3 people) and we were the only ones for miles to see. It's an unattached paradise!

Wow, pinch myself every chance I have to head out to Whitehaven Beach, which I did on Saturday 19th November, with my youngest son. The Southern corner where we went to had picnic tables under the shade for an awesome BBQ lunch and was out of the wind. The ocean was as smooth as glass for about two hours we... More

This really is the best beach I have ever been to. Whitehaven beach is protected and so is not disturbed by modern construction, and there are no accommodation on the beach (day trips only). The entire area is truly a beach in all its glory. The pure sand and water stretches across the entire beach, with a short hiking track... More
