Whitehaven Beach, The Whitsundays

Currently ranked as the fourth most beautiful beach in the world and host to some of the whitest sands you’ll ever set your eyes upon, Whitehaven Beach is an absolute MUST if you find yourself on the East Coast of Australia.

Seriously, seriously, seriously.

Get your Australia bucket list out and add it on.

Yes it’s touristy and everyone and their dog books a trip to Whitehaven Beach, but still, it’s crazy beautiful and if you’re in the area you’ll be silly to miss it.

You can take a day trip out to Whitehaven beach from Abell Point Marina in Airlee Beach {the official gateway to the Whitsundays}, or you can extend the adventure to 2/3 days with most of the sailing companies in the Marina.

Tip: Grab a Boho Bowl from Bohemian Raw Cafe at the Marina, you will not regret it.

The choice to extend your sailing adventure will allow you to, not only visit Whitehaven, but too explore some of the other 74 islands that make up the Whitsundays. Inclusion within the majority of these trips is the opportunity to snorkel or dive on the reef where swimming up alongside rays, dolphins, turtles and Nemo’s isn’t an uncommon occurrence.

Booking your trip…

There are many sailing companies that offer trips out to the Whitsundays, most of which depart from the same Marina which is a 15 minute walk from the small town of Airlee Beach. Here are the main ones to browse or consider when planning your trip…

MONEY SAVING TIP:

I am an ambassador for Ratpacktravel.com and can get you 10% off any of the tours when you use code ‘MOLLIE10’ at checkout. They sell the best 4 (in my opinion) Whitsunday trips and seeing as these trips aren’t cheap… it works out to be a pretty decent saving.

Unless you’ve got a fancy yacht of your own… in which case, can i join you?

I’ve been absolutely spoilt having visited Whitehaven beach now on three separate occasions. The first time was on my East Coast Backpacking adventure where i climbed aboard the Condor, the second on the Boomerang yacht with Contiki and the third yesterday on board the Condor.

I was honestly more blown away by the beauty each time i went, i don’t think it’s a place you could ever see too much of.

Tip: Be sure to check out the vibes of the boat and decide what kind of trip you’d like it to be. There are chilled boats, adventure boats, youth boats and party boats amongst the selection on offer.

Over the years I have developed a love for video and photo composition and so this time round I took my new Canon 5DMK111, my GoPro and my drone to capture Whitehaven Beach.

  • I love Whitehaven beach! I thought it was going to be super touristy but it didn’t feel like it at all. Apparently it’s slightly different every time you visit too which makes it such a returnable destination! (is returnable a word?) P.S. your photos are INCREDIBLE!
