I visited this beautiful beach when I did a boat trip and WOW. You have to witness it with your own eyes as the pictures don't do it justice. The sand is amazing, we snorkelled and saw so many colourful fishes. We had to wear these jelly fish protectors and they were comical. I would recommend Whitehaven Beach to anyone.... More

Currently works have started but the damages on trees are unfortunately substantial. Many trees have fallen. The green will be back, some beachfront trees are gone. Still a wonderful beach, now with some scars from nature.

Paradise found. Only accessible by boat. But make sure you wear sunscreen over factor 30 when you go. I got very sunburnt!

Went here in winter, it was cold and windy but still the day was amazing. The beach is stunning and is so worth going to see. You won't see anything like it.

Honestly, a fantastic day out and a must-see to tick off that bucket list. I wouldn't say it's the best beach BUT, it's a beautiful site from the top and something to get excited about! The view from Hill Inlet is gorgeous! Don't forget your cameras AND a good pair of runners. The walk is a good 15 minutes up... More

This beach is the most overrated and overpriced piece of land i've ever seen. We could have saved $99 each, and just gone to catseye beach on hamilton island. Regardless of recent events (cyclone debbie) this place and boat tour was very disapointing.

Had a fabulous time sailing around the Whitsundays. Absolutely stunning, gorgeous sand and the sea is prefect. Great company, and very happy memories made. Hope I'm lucky enough to return one day.
