Whitsunday Island, QLD: Whitehaven Beach

Next on our travels we headed to Hamilton Island, and one of the best excursions from there was to head out to Whitehaven Beach.

The boat journey out was around an hour. We had lunch included (but by lunch they meant melon and muffins) and a few hours on one of the most famous beaches in the world.

The sand was almost pure white and the sea crystal clear along the six kilometre stretch of beach – it was another stunning day inĀ Australia.

The pure white silica sand means that no matter how hot the day is, the sand never gets hot, so it is perfect to kick off your sandals and sink your tootsies in.

Unfortunately we were anchored too far away to climb the hill to see the famous inlet, but we did have a few hours to enjoy the peace of the beautiful beach, so we swam, snorkelled and took photos a-plenty!

If you are one for lounging on a beach this is perfect for you. We had limited time so we couldn’t really explore, but if you are after something more then maybe a full day would suit you better.

Have you been to Whitehaven? I’d love to see some pics!
