Whitehaven in the Whitsundays – Queensland

A tropical paradise.

The Whitsundays Islands in the heart of the Coral Sea are considered among the most beautiful islands on the planet. The whiteness of the sand and the turquoise of the sea are worthy of a postcard setting. They are perfect for those who like to relax but also for nature lovers as they are still mostly totally preserved. 

Located on the tropical side of Queensland the Whitsundays are 74 landscapes of white sand and turquoise water. Off the coast of Conway National Park and south of the Great Barrier Reef, they are idyllic sceneries with sublime bays, beaches and wild lagoons.

Only seven islands have tourist resorts but most are uninhabited and it is possible, with prior authorization, to camp on the beach or bushwalking.

Whitehaven is a 7 km long beach on the eastern coast of the largest island of the archipelago, Whitsunday Island, in the heart of the Coral Sea. It stands out from the other islands and has gained popularity due to the white and fine white sand that covers it. In addition, the abundant tropical vegetation invites itself in the decor and the setting is simply heavenly.

Whitehaven Beach also offers some activities such as snorkeling (diving with mask, fins and snorkel), rather in the south, and camping possibilities in the rest of the island. Beware of the wet season and stingray bites between December and March.

Leave your camper, van or 4x4 on the east coast for a few hours or days and discover the most beautiful beach in Queensland.
