This makes it comfortable to walk on or lie down on during the hot summer months. Additionally, this is one of the largest beaches within the Whitsundays at over four miles long.

The commonality between these beaches is excellent location, tranquil turquoise waters and soft, silky white sand that completes the relaxation package.
