The jewel of the Whitsunday Islands, no tour to this idyllic destination is complete without visiting the remarkable, Whitehaven Beach.
Explore The Whitsundays with Whitehaven Beach Tours
A 7km stretch of pristine white silica sands on Whitsunday Island, the island is only accessible via boat. Whitehaven Beach has been rated the most eco-friendly and cleanest beach in the world, and due to its silica sand, it doesn’t retain heat, meaning you can spend a lazy day here without burning the soles of your feet in between dips in the ocean.
Whitsunday Island is the largest amongst the 74 islands that make up the Whitsunday Islands National Park. During a day visiting Whitehaven Beach you can either sink your feet into the purest silica sand on Earth, or take a dip in the ocean to explore the colourful marine life that bustles below the surface.
The Whitsunday Islands’ National Park offers some of the best snorkelling in the world and it’s here that you can hope to spot marine turtles, jellyfish, mollusks, crustaceans, fish and maybe a few dolphins along the way! Exploring the Great Barrier Reef will give you the chance to take in the largest coral structure on Earth as well as all the marine life it attracts, including; sharks, rays, eels, and many, many more. In fact there are actually 1625 species of fish, 630 types of starfish and sea urchins, 14 varieties of sea snakes, and 30 species of whales and dolphins – so you may want to pack a waterproof camera when visiting!
One of the best ways to visit Whitehaven Beach is via Ocean Rafting. With their high speed vessels you can spend the day soaking up the stunning scenery of the Whitsunday Islands as well as snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef.
Ocean Rafting offer two tours, their Northern Exposure Tour and the Southern Lights tour. The main difference between the two tours is that the Northern Exposure has more snorkelling time and the Southern Lights offers more beach time. Ocean Rafting also offer a Double Deal for both cruises so you can experience more adventure for less!
