whitehaven beach:





Are you ready for an aqua-colour overload? 

Wanting to make the most of our time in the Whitsundays, Andy and I chartered a helicopter to Whitehaven, one of Australia's most famous stretches of beach. 
Located on Whitsunday Island, Whitehaven is famous for its postcard-perfect white silica sand and Hill Inlet (those swirling blues and aquas). You can't beat seeing Whitehaven and the surrounding islands in all their glory from the air (you may know I'm a big fan of a birds-eye view), and you know, it's not everyday you get to fly in a helicopter!

As for the experience, I'll let the photos do the talking... crazy amazing.

Our trip up to Hamilton Island was a gentle reminder of how beautiful Australia really is (I know I really take it for granted, looking at overseas destinations for holidays) and that there is so much to explore and discover right here. We're already planning our next trip up to the Whitsundays, which will hopefully involve some sailing! Can't wait.

Thank you Hamilton Island and qualia for the most amazing weekend!

  7. I was just at Whitehaven Beach too but I think you did a better job of capturing its beauty in photos. Oh well. At least I enjoyed rubbing myself down with that gorgeous sand and came back feeling silky smooth!
