Whitehaven Beach is site of Ky Hurst’s Body Science Great Australian Swim Series in Whitsunday Island in Queensland.

Whitehaven Beach was named the top Eco Friendly Beach in the world by CNN. The white sands of Whitehaven Beach are renowned, consisting of 98% pure silica which gives it a bright white color. Local rocks do not contain silica so it has been suggested that the sands were brought to the beach via prevailing sea currents over millions of years.
