Whitehaven beach

Ultimate guide (January 2022)
Whitehaven is a beach on Whitsunday island. This is one of the best beaches in Australia. While the entire Whitsunday coast suffers from the low tide, in Whitehaven it leads to spectacular exposure of the sandy bottom, which looks so beautiful from the aerial view. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
