You are truly spoilt for choice not just on the island but for exploring the great blue yonder that surrounds it.

DAYDREAM FRINGING REEF
Step off the beach at secluded Lovers’ Cove and you’ll be greeted by a kaleidoscopic welcoming party of parrot fish, inviting you into their world and the beautiful fringing reef just beyond shore. The condition of Daydream’s fringing reef is regarded as one of the healthiest and best in the region. Snorkel lessons are available for those who need a little help or guidance getting goggle-eyed at the spectacle.

Consistently named one of the world’s best beaches, Whitehaven more than lives up to the poetry of its name.
