You will normally spend a full morning or afternoon enjoying the 7 kilometres of pure white silica sand, including a visit to the spectacular Hill Inlet lookout, where you will access a panoramic view of the beach. Your crew will take you for a short but fun bus-walk up to this lookout giving you insight into the region's local wildlife and history. From Hill Inlet, you will be able to capture postcard-perfect photos and depending on the tide, may even be able to spot sting rays and baby sharks with the naked eye!
The Whitsundays is a region that people visit not only for Whitehaven Beach, but for the spectacular fringing reefs. The remarkable reef systems infuse together some of the most spectacular corals, tropical fish and other interesting marine life. The islands offer protection from wind and waves, providing you with calm and comfortable areas to snorkel.
