Whitehaven Beach In 10 Photos

Whitehaven Beach In 10 Photos

We entered the island from Tongue Bay where we immediately headed through the rainforest following signs for ‘Hill Inlet’, the walk isn’t far but in our hungover state we were not revelling in the idea of having to do more than lying flat on the beach. Following along one after another with our small group from the New Horizon Crew we passed several groups coming back down from the Hill Inlet all discussing how beautiful it was…

And my were we grateful we had made the trek up to this beautiful look out, listed in the top 10 most photographed places of the world it was easy to understand why. I instantly wished I wasn’t so hungover and was able to enjoy the view more than I did still it resulted in some postcard pictures of one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.

We headed back down the path and in the direction of the beach, it took what seemed like forever to make our way on to the pure white sand. It felt like paradise, the sky a bright blue hue, the sea a different shade closer to turquoise and the sand was like no beach I have ever some across before.

IMG_6329 EDIT 2This beach really is one of the most beautiful places on earth, the sea is so blue and clear. Despite being on a group tour for the majority of the time it was our group and a few other smaller groups at no point did I feel there were too many people on this beautiful beach. It was relaxing and tranquil, I can only imagine what being on a beach like this with no one else around would be like. When it came time for us to leave and head off to do some snorkelling of the Great Barrier Reef I couldn’t help but not want to go. Even after two hours it felt like we had only just arrived.

    Those are some sweet photos! I agree that a visit to Whitehaven will always be too short. A couple of hours is just not enough, its a place you want to bed down and stay in for at least a few days. A paradise!

    That looks so amazing! I don’t think I’ve ever seen beach so white and water so blue.

      Neither had I until I visited the Whitsunday Islands. Definitely one for the bucket list!
