You got to see Whitehaven Beach if visiting the Whitsundays. Make sure you have a walk up the lookout, the view is stunning. We walked around in the water next to Stingrays, Lemonsharks and lots of other fishes.

Can’t put into words how beautiful Whitehaven beach is. You HAVE to complete the walk to the Hill Inlet for the most incredible view. It’s exactly what it looks like in the photos, it doesn’t look real!complete paradise and something we will never forget.
