This is one of the most famous beaches in Queensland. It is located in the breathtaking Whitsunday Islands. The sand on this breathtaking beach will probably be the whitest sand you have seen. Some argue that the water at the beach is even more beautiful as it is clear turquoise water. You can visit the beach during a variety of Whitsunday cruises, or stay on Hamilton Island and take the 30-minute boat ride.

This is one of Tasmania’s most mesmerizing beaches. It is easily accessible since it is located only 2.5 hours from Hobart and is among the wild beauty of Freycinet National Park. The bay is also carpeted with white sand bordered by incredibly clear blue water. Not only can you enjoy the beach itself but you can also look at it from a height. To do that, set off on the three-kilometer return hike from the Wineglass Bay car park to see the vibrant view.
