Only accessible by boat or helicopter, Whitehaven Beach is surely one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The entire island is a natural preserve, featuring some of the purest sand on earth, crystal clear waters and access to the Great Barrier Reef. There are no restaurants, bars or hotels, and there are strict visitation limits. You have to register with a tour guide in order to be allowed to visit.
