Picturesque Whitehaven Beach is one of the Whitsundays premier natural attractions - five miles (seven kilometers) of glistening white silica sand complemented by crystal clear waters. Located on Whitsunday Island, the largest island in the region, Whitehaven Beach is fully protected and uninhabited due to its National and Marine Park status. Its shallows are graced by various species of turtles, and these ancient creatures are often sighted during daily visits.
Swim in the crystal clear waters, take a leisurely walk along the pristine beach, join in the beach games or just relax and soak up the sunshine.
If you are feeling a little adventurous you have the option (at your own expense) to take a guided "Solway Walk". Starting from Whitehaven Beach, this one-way circuit winds uphill to a natural rock platform giving spectacular views over Solway Passage and the surrounding Whitsunday Islands.
