One of the most beautiful archipelagos in Australia, the Whitsunday Islands are best explored via water. Consisting of 74 islands between the northeast coast of Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef, the majority of these stunning islands are uninhabited, making for the perfect tropical island escape. Natural landscapes here vary from luscious, rich rainforests to winding hiking trails to pristine sandy white beaches with sparkling lagoons. Offering the ultimate exotic seclusion, a Whitsunday Island yacht charter will ensure you and your guests are able to relax and unwind under the sun in full peace and tranquillity. As only four of the islands within the chain are populated, you will have all the privacy and natural calm you are looking for while basking in all the region’s natural glory. The namesake island of the archipelago, Whitsunday Island, is home to one of the most stunning beaches in the world, Whitehaven beach. Only accessible via boat or helicopter, the sand here is 98 percent silica, which makes it so white, it seems almost unreal. Anchor nearby and spend the day soaking up the sun on this 7km stretch of paradise beach. One of the cleanest beaches in the area, enjoy swimming in the warm, turquoise waters before drinking a cocktail or two on the deck of your charter yacht.
