“Paradise Beach with a limit”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

This beach is truly amazing!
Go there if you´re in the neighborhood. We jumped on a boattrip(thats the only way to get there), then you get appr. 2h on the beach. Boats are coming in and going all the time so it´s pretty crowded. But still worth it.
Amazing sand, witch by the way is forbidden to take.
We got lunch on the boat and it was really nice people working and relaxed atmosphere.

“Secluded and special”
Reviewed 26 April 2013 via mobile

A truly amazing place, never been to a beach like it! Took a boat from airlie beach out to the whitsundays and stopped here for the day. Lazing around with no one around on a beach that felt like walking on the finest white silica powder...amazing place that I will rember for a long, long time. Do not expect bars, etc here...there is an environmental toilet (sand box...watch out for the red backs!) and a couple of picnic tables...and that's your lot! Fantastic!!!
