Whitehaven Beach Voted Best Beach in the South Pacific

World-famous Whitehaven Beach in the Whitsundays has again taken out the top gong for the South Pacific’s Best Beach in the 2015 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards.

This marks the third consecutive year that Whitehaven Beach was voted Australia’s Best Beach by TripAdvisor reviewers.

Picture-perfect Whitehaven Beach also ranked in the Top 10 of the world’s best beaches.

Whitsundays Marketing and Development Limited (WMDL) Executive Director Jeff Aquilina was very excited that the region’s iconic beach had yet again proven to be a favourite with travellers.

“On behalf of the Whitsundays tourism industry, we are absolutely thrilled that Whitehaven Beach has taken out the top gong as the best beach in the South Pacific,” Mr Aquilina said.


“It is a tribute to the stunning natural beauty of the Whitsundays and our local tourism operators who allow visitors to experience the exceptional beauty and magic of Whitehaven Beach and the Whitsunday Islands whilst keeping it clean and preserving this natural wonder at the same time,” he said.

“It is a great honour for our region that this beauty is recognised and appreciated by travellers from all over the world,”

“We have an array of amazing visitor experiences on offer here in the Whitsundays but feeling the soft silica sands below your feet on Whitehaven Beach and taking a dip in the crystal clear waters is certainly a ‘must do’,” Mr Aquilina said.

“A huge thank you goes to all TripAdvisor reviewers who have voted for Whitehaven Beach as their favourite, making it a true bucket list experience for travellers from around the world.”

Nestled in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, the crystal clear turquoise waters and pristine silica sand of iconic Whitehaven Beach stretch over seven kilometres along Whitsunday Island, the largest of the 74 islands in the Whitsundays.
