Honestly, a fantastic day out and a must-see to tick off that bucket list. I wouldn't say it's the best beach BUT, it's a beautiful site from the top and something to get excited about! The view from Hill Inlet is gorgeous! Don't forget your cameras AND a good pair of runners. The walk is a good 15 minutes up... More

This beach is the most overrated and overpriced piece of land i've ever seen. We could have saved $99 each, and just gone to catseye beach on hamilton island. Regardless of recent events (cyclone debbie) this place and boat tour was very disapointing.

Fantastic trip to Whitehaven Beach with Cruise Whitsundays. The package included cruising to a few of the islands for pickups, snorkelling, which was straight off the beach all equipment provided, fish all around, many colours shapes and sizes. The coral was beautiful, wavering in the azure water, so many colours and shades. A barbecue on the beach, well cooked and... More

Are you stressed? Need a breather? Wait! Do you need your breath taken away??? Get yourself here. The human-to-nature relationship and the serenity of this unmanned island is just spectacular. Remember- it is a national park. Be at peace with the nature around you. And keep your memories of this beautiful beach and island always. I would say- it is... More

Is a place where you have to go. That beach is completely amazing. I went by boat and by plane as well and that was one of my best moment in my live.

I had the absolute pleasure of anchoring around the corner in a small inlet while on a bare boat yacht charter. To walk on this beach early morning and completely deserted was an amazing and inspiring experience
