Whitehaven Beach

A pristine 7km stretch on Whitsunday Island, famous for its pure silica sand and crystal-clear waters, a jewel of Queensland's coast.

Tips from the community

Known famously for its snow-like white sand and crystal clear blue waters- Whitehaven Beach is a remote Australian treasure. While this beach gets its fair share of foot traffic thanks to the dazzling landscape, idyllic climate, and stunning views, we included Whitehaven Beach in this list due to the effort made by local governments to preserve the environment of the beach. With littering, smoking, and other disturbances banned from the area- Whitehaven is known internationally as an eco-friendly getaway that allows travelers to connect with a pristine shoreline unlike any other.
