 CNN's World's Most Eco-Friendly Beach Award Goes to the Oz Whitehaven

The world's best eco-friendly beach is The Whitehaven in Australia's Whitesunday Islands, global news network CNN declared.

The sparkling 4.3km Whitehaven Beach has won many awards, including Cleanest Beach in Queensland, and national awards for resource recovery and environmental protection.

"The breathtaking beach is located on Whitsunday Island, the largest of a 74-island chain," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted CNN as telling about the beach.

"Visitors are limited by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority and must register with a tour guide for access," said CNN.

The network also said that most of its eco-friendly beaches remain in good condition because of limited access.

Italian travel website Viaggi Republica has replicated the list on their site.

Tourism Whitsundays CEO Peter O'Reilly said that Whitehaven Beach was the only Australian beach to be honoured.

"This is a huge honour and one which everyone in the Whitsundays, and Australia, should be proud of," said O'Reilly.
