Whitsunday Islands and it’s beautiful Whitehaven Beach

Whitsunday

When I was in Australia one of the things I really wanted to do was visiting the Whitsunday Islands. Most people think that the Whitsunday is only one island but it is actually a collection of islands off the central coast of Queensland and it is part of the Great Barrier Reef.

The most famous beach is Whitehaven Beach and it is also the landmark of the Whitsunday Islands.

You can visit the Whitsunday Islands per day trip, only seeing Whitehaven Beach, or do a 2-3 day trip. Just make sure you do your research before you book because there are a lot of different companies and also party boats.

The easiest way to visit the Whitsunday Islands is from Airlie Beach.
I did the 3 days, 2 nights boat trip so we did see a bit more than only Whitehaven Beach.
But I have to admit that a day trip would had been fine for me. But then again I am not much of a boat girl.

We visited Whitehaven Beach on our second day.

First we went to Tongue Point where we had an amazing view of Whitehaven Beach. After that it was time to go to Whitehaven Beach itself. Here we did a couple funny pictures with a vegemite jar, jumping pictures, etc. Unfortunately you had to pay extra for those pictures and paying 30 dollars was way to much for me. So you have to do it with the pictures I took by myself. Haha.

Here are some pictures of the white sand and the crystal blue water.
As you can see it was a bit cloudy that day but it was still warm and beautiful. And of course when we left the clouds disappeared, haha!

If you like sunrises I would recommend getting up early to enjoy these beautiful skies.

    Ja, ik zou zeker gaan! Wat een paradijsje en ondanks de bewolking hier en daar blijft het prachtig. Ik zou voor een dagtrip kiezen, meerdere dagen op een boot is niet echt voor mij weggelegd.

      Zeker en vast! Ik heb dus ook ondervonden dat het niet echt mijn ding was! haha. Maar weer geleerd voor de volgende keer. Ik wil zeker nog een terug gaan 🙂

    Your photos are very beautiful. I can see what you mean when you say that the bad weather didn’t spoil the beautiful of the Whisunday Islands. The color of the water and the beautiful white sand don’t change at all, even if it’s cloudy, and the scenery remains spectacular. I guess that the clouds actually give some personality to your photos, a clear sky would have been boring. 🙂

    If I had the chance I’d love to visit the Whitsunday Islands. Always been on the list of places to go. But alas the money. It does seem rather expensive a place to visit.

      That is true but you will love it! 🙂 But then I would recommend doing a day trip instead.

    Whitsunday Islands seem like an idyllic getaway. The Whitehaven beach looks so tranquil and secluded. I am enaboured by the crystal blue waters and the spotless white sand. Would love to head out there and bask in the natural beauty of the place.

      I know you will love it! I hope you get there one day 🙂

    Despite the clouds there, the place looks magical. I love the sunset pics too…they are magical. I can see that you must have had a blast. Now I am craving for a beach

      I was a bit bummed about the clouds but it’s still a must even when the clouds 😉
