t’s late morn­ing and we’re stand­ing on what must surely be the world’s most beau­ti­ful beach. The he­li­copters that buzzed us across the Coral Sea, flirt­ing like amorous drag­on­flies over the fa­mous Heart Reef—the back­drop for count­less air­borne pro­pos­als of mar­riage—crouch qui­etly on the sev­enkilo­me­tre strip of sil­ver sil­ica, with sand so fine it will pol­ish a wed­ding ring wrapped in my palms. Cham­pagne splashes in glasses, white bub­bles spi­ral in the sparkling sea­wa­ter lap­ping the golden shore­line and gourmet treats await in chic pic­nic ham­pers pro­vided by our pi­lots, who rest un­seen in ham­mocks shaded un­der nearby trees. Par­adise found.

Australia’s most pho­tographed beach, White­haven, is a short hop from One & Only Hay­man Is­land, our ex­clu­sive trop­i­cal-is­land get­away nes­tled at the north­ern­most tip of the Whit­sun­day ar­chi­pel­ago in the heart of the Great Bar­rier Reef.
