Welcome to the sunny Whitsunday Islands! It is an archipelago made up of 74 islands off of Australia’s Queensland coast. Visitors from all over the world make the trip to admire the white powder sands of Whitehaven Beach and even more so to explore the famous Great Barrier Reef. Popular spots to explore by water include Chance Bay, Joe’s Beach, Nari’s Beach, and Langford Island. Of the 74 islands, there are four islands: Hamilton, Hayman, Daydream, and Long Islands that offer accommodations, restaurants, and other activities like scuba diving and sky diving. They make for excellent stops with your boat rental in Whitsunday Islands!
By many, Whitehaven Beach is considered the most beautiful beach in the world. Since it is on an uninhabited island, the best way to get here is with a boat rental from one of the developed islands like Hamilton Island. During your time at Whitehaven Beach, be sure also to explore the northern end, where a shallow inlet, and the changing tides paint a stunning fusion of the azure water and white sand.
The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s most extensive coral reef system and is located in the Coral Sea. The reef protects islands like the Whitsunday Islands from the ocean’s large swells. This area makes it the perfect place to rent a boat for sailing, snorkeling, swimming, and relaxing. Many people come to snorkel at the Heart Reef, which is a small patch of coral in the Great Barrier Reef that has formed into a large heart that can even be seen from the sky. Between the beautiful corals, the magnificient islands and the abundance of marine life, there is so much to see!
