Tim and Oliver took us out on the seabob, it was the coolest thing ever, I told him I wanted to see beautiful coloured coral and they did not disappoint , Oliver made the tour so much fun , he taught my girls how to do barrel rolls and flips while I enjoyed the amazing fish and coral reefs.

Great spot for a day. Get there early and stay late. Bring a bit of sun protection if possible. Do the look-out first, then head down to the beach for the rest of the day. Check out the manta-rays and baby lemon sharks in the sandy tide pools under the look-out. Best time is low tide, as the channel is... More

We went on this beach within a daytrip snorkeling. The white silica sand and blue water is amazing, worth to see and enjoy. Due to jellyfishes it was not safe to swim without stingersuit but at least we have funny pics ;)

We visited Whitehaven beach with our 2 little boys from a cruise whitsundays tour departing from Hamilton island. The beach itself is amazing, we have visited many beautiful beaches but this was completely different, the sand is incredibly white and doesn't get hot, it doesn't feel like any other sand you have ever walked on and squeaks under your feet....

I'm so gutted it was overcast on the day I came here, I hope one day I can return on a sunny day. It's beautiful but I can imagine it's another world when the sun shines. At the time we came here there were a number of other sailing tour groups here too so it was a bit busier than... More

Definitely a must see when at hamilton, but I would go to the inlet next time to get a better view of the swirls.

Went twice, as the first time the weather was overcast. The difference between overcast and sunny day visits are truly amazing. Postcard sunny day with so many different colours was amongst the highlights of any holiday I have had.

Best beach, purest white sand, and bluest water I have ever seen. Take a seaplane in if you can and enjoy the spectacular areal views. Camping on the beach for a couple nights is without a doubt on our of things to do next time.

This truly is a stunning beach. Miles of white sands with warm and calm waters to swim. Paddling can be done close to tge shore edge but gets deep fairly quickly. We needed sting suits to ensure we were free of the vicious jelly fish at that time of year. Barbecue lunch whilst watching the local lizard wildlife made for... More
