One of the most iconic destinations in Australia, the Whitsundays is made up of 74 islands dotted between the Whitsunday Coast and the Great Barrier Reef. Many of the islands are not inhabited which means there are endless ways to explore the beauty of the area. From dense sub-tropical rainforests, hiking trails and some of the most pristine and untouched beaches on the planet - we're sure you'll understand why we're a little biased!
Best spots to visit
Australia is home to some of the most beautiful beaches and the Whitsundays just so happen to claim a handful of them. So without further or do, here's 5 of our favourite hot spots to help you plan your next charter
1. Whitehaven Beach
One of the most iconic beaches in the Whitsundays with it's impeccably white sand and swirls of turquoise, aqua and green. An absolute must see when visiting the islands!
2. Chalkies Beach
A secluded beach opposite the iconic Whitehaven Beach, located on Haselwood Island. It's far from the usual tourist destinations, one of the locals best kept secrets. It's believed to be the only other beach in the world made up of the same sand as Whitehaven Beach. This beach is highly underrated and we recommend including this hidden gem on your next trip with us.
3. Langford Island
Although this little jewel is small in size, it definitely makes up for it with it's beautiful coral-filled lagoons. The optimum time to visit the island is during low tide when the strip of beach is exposed, perfect for a beach picnic, sun baking and swimming. The best location to snorkel on the island is at the Northern end, where you'll find plenty of small reef fish. It may not take up much space, although we feel it's worth a few hours of tourist attention!
4. Butterfly Bay
An absolutely stunning snorkelling spot located on the northern side of the second largest island in the Whitsundays known as Hook Island. Home to some of the most colourful and active coral gardens in the area we are sure you'll need to relax on the beach after all that underwater adventuring!
5. Blue Pearl Bay & Dolphin Point
A very unique beach made up of coral and beautiful rocky scenery. This location is one of our favourite swimming holes with coral gardens just off the shore of Dolphin Point, it's the perfect spot for any snorkel enthusiasts.
