Whitehaven Beach is without a doubt, one of the most sought after locations in Australia. The iconic swirling sands of Hill Inlet create a beautiful backdrop for photos, and the crystal clear turquoise waters lap over 7km of pure white silica sand. However you choose to spend your time here, we can promise you it will become one of your fondest memories while in the Whitsundays.
Walk up to Hill Inlet Lookout for some of the greatest views in the Whitsundays and witness the famous swirling sands of Hill Inlet from above. The swirling sands below are created by the ever-changing currents and tides, meaning no two visits will ever be the same.
