Whitehaven Beach, Whitsundays, Queensland

Whitehaven Beach is a definite "must-see" in the Whitsundays and Oprah thought so too! Oprah Winfrey and 92 of her ultimate audience members were lucky enough to experience a huge private beach picnic on Whitehaven Beach with celebrity chef Curtis Stone back in December 2010.

The crystal clear aqua waters and pristine silica sand of Whitehaven stretch over seven kilometres along Whitsunday Island , the largest of the 74 islands in the Whitsundays. It defines nature at its best and provides the greatest sense of relaxation and escape.

As soon as you arrive it’s easy to see why it is the most photographed beach in Australia and has been named "Queensland's Most Beautiful Beach" by 'Keep Australia Beautiful' and Queensland’s Friendliest Beach in 2009
