"The third best beach in the world" Whitsunday Islands Things to Do Tip by coolbananas

Whitsunday Islands Things to Do: 62 reviews and 69 photos

According to the general opinion (I don't know who were involved in making up this opinion; an opinion is always very subjective of course) Whitehaven Beach is rated as the third most beautiful beach in the world. All I can say is that it's a very nice beach indeed: extremely white sand (which doesn't get hot and which can also be used for the cleaning of your jewelry) and a clear blue ocean.

The best thing to do is to go here at low tide, cause at that time you'll get to see the sand banks they show on all the postcards. If possible you should also try to go there early in the morning (around 8 AM) cause it's not as busy with tourists yet.
