Waste of time. It's a remote beach... If you go by boat you isolate yourself for the best part of the day to sit on a scorchingly hot beach, in the middle of nowhere, with minimum facilities. I'll tell you how good it was, people...More

My fiance and I went here courtesy of Whitsunday Cruises. They advised borrowing a full-body swim suite because there's potential to be stung by jelly fish. It was a beautiful, hot day. I'm not sure if people pumped it up for us, but although the...More

I have never seen a beach with sand as white as this one. We were lucky to see a big stingray and a lemon shark when we visited this beach. The water is completely clear and it is absolutely stunning!

Really good to make a day out of it. Stunning views from the bush walk. We saw a group of rays when on the view point and a turtle on the other side of the island.

The beach is just stunning. Fantastic for kids as the sand does not heat up. Cheap camping and the facilities are always clean. The outlook and water and second to none!
