A beautiful day on a fantastic unspoilt beach. Great views from the look out point. Getting to see the other Islands on the trip to Whitehaven is a bonus

Absolutely beautiful beach, and a great trip out there. But be prepared - nothing to do there besides swim, sit, or walk on the beach.

This beach is the one you have always dreamed of. The powdery white silica sand is so luxurious and the water is so Incredibally turquoise in color. We blasted out to Whitehaven at high speed and rounded Whitsunday Island to reveal Whitehaven beach. We had about two hours to swim, stroll along the beach, or just soak up the sun. Some people rented pop up sun tents, but we just found a shady tree to park under. We brought a picnic lunch, but snacks are provided on the way home as well. This may only be a half day tour, but it is so lovely and should not be missed.

This trip was good and gets you to whitehaven beach which is beautiful, but I recommend some of the other tours over this one. This one spends a lot of time on the Catamaran, unloading/loading at Whitehaven, and has a stop on the way out to the beach from Arlie stop at Hamilton to pick up other people. If possible, I would recommend one of the speed boat trips with Hamilton Island Reef Ryders. This half day trip had a lot more in it and we still got time at Whitehaven.

The beach itself was awesome and although it was raining heavily the day we went, it didin't stop us enjoying swimming, walking and having a laugh! The only downside was the actual boat to take us out to the beach.We were under the impression it was a sailing boat / yacht which turned out to be a large ferry, stopping at other islands along the way to pick up more passengers. However, with the heavy rain, being this ferry turned out to be a good thing! It was a great day out.

We chose the half day trip because there are no facilities at all on Whitehaven Beach - and rightly so. It's a beautiful stretch of white powdery sand that gets in everything. It took quite a while to get there with stops there and back at Daydream and Hamilton Island where you change boats on the way out. Journeys are twice as long as you get to stay on the beach but scenery end route is wonderful.
