The Reward: Whitehaven Beach

Date:

It won’t be easy to get there… but the journey will be worth it

 

WHITEHAVEN BEACH, AUSTRALIA

This is the remote Whitsunday Island –largest of the 74 islands in the Whitsundays situated off the northeast coat of Australia. And what makes it remarkable is the sand … composed of 98% silica, it’s among the whitest anywhere on earth with a fine, powder-like consistency.

THE HARD BIT

To get there you’ll need take a boat ride or a short flight in a seaplane.
