AUSTRALIA: Hamilton Island & Whitehaven Beach

HAMILTON ISLAND & WHITEHAVEN BEACH (part of the WHITSUNDAY ISLANDS) are TWO OF THE BEST PLACES I HAVE BEEN TO SO FAR IN MY ENTIRE LIFE! As we had 2 weeks in Australia, we had 2 full weekends to go out with Uncle Ronald (our Australia trip sponsor). For one of the weekends, he planned a trip for us to go to the Whitsunday Islands!

When I researched this online, I saw beautiful pictures. Pictures on the internet do not do justice though because when we got there, the place was so BEAUTIFUL, AMAZING and LUXURIOUS.

We were very lucky as Peter and Maggie (My uncle’s boss and his wife) had a place in Hamilton Island so we did not have to worry about membership or accommodation.

This beauty was just one of those locations I often see on TV, I never really thought I would be blessed enough to experience a place like this! Super grateful!

After our day at Hamilton Island, Uncle Ronald took us on a Whitehaven Beach day tour organized by FANTASEA.

AND OMG, the beach was so beautiful! HEAVEN ON EARTH! I have never seen a beach like that. It is my #1 in the best beaches I have been to in my life list. Sorry, Philippine Beaches, but it was really amazing.



The white sand was so pristine and SQUEAKY (Yes squeaky!), the view was great, and there were no commercial establishments.

The day tour was operated by FANTASEA. They provided us with lunch and amenities. The boat was luxurious too. The buffet food was great and the staff was hot! 😉 The guy who helped us out was really cute! 😉

Leaving the island was so heartbreaking. As our boat departed, my sister & I were even shouting “Goodbye Forever!”. I hope that I get to go back someday. It was truly one of the most heavenly places I have been to and I thank God that we were blessed to have that experience.
