Whitehaven Beach tops the list of Australian beaches

Australian beachesWhitehaven Beach in the Whitsundays tops the list of Australian beaches in Tripadvisor’s 2016 Travellers’ Choice Awards(voted number 12 in world).

It’s the fourth year in a row the beach has taken its Oscars-worthy position in the rankings, winning the number one spot in the South Pacific, too.

What makes it so special is the average water temperature which is 26 degrees Celcius year-round. It’s also a pretty fancy place to show off your yacht.

The silica white sand of Whitehaven Beach stretches for seven kilometres, so there’s plenty of room to claim a patch all your own for the day. It’s also great for polishing jewellery.

Whitehaven Beach is part of the Whitsunday Islands National Park. What most people don’t realise is you can camp overnight from as little as $5.75 per person, per night.

Salty Dog Sea Kayaking run trips that literally launch from Whitehaven Beach for six days of Whitsundays paddling bliss.

Or if you like your beach visits nice and speedy, jump on board one of Ocean Rafting‘s inflatable launches.

    Whitehaven Beach deserves every accolade it receives. 7am Sunrise at Hill Inlet lookout on the Northern end of the beach is just simply stunning :)
