Beautiful colours in Whitehaven Beach/Australia

We did a sailing boat trip in the Whitsunday Islands/Australia and stopped for two hours at Whitehaven Beach. This is the most beautiful beach that I saw in Australia and we were so lucky that no other tourists were there at that moment. We had the beach to ourselves. Our guide showed us a spectacular view from above where the deep blue ocean meets the water which is turquoise from the mangroves which results in amazing colours!
