If you’re looking for the perfect beach destination, look no further than the Whitsundays with its pallet of pure white sands, vivid blue sea and ripples of every shade in-between. There is something truly romantic about the rainforest-clad beaches that lie off the coast of Queensland and if you’re yet to visit, you need to add Whitsundays to your things to do list.
The best hub to start your Whitsundays exploration, you’ll find incredible food and wine, music, markets and so much more. From most resorts, the esplanade is only a short stroll downhill and from there you can take tours on land or sea to visit every manner of natural wonder.
Then, at the end of the day, you can watch the sun set over this spectacular coastline from the comfort of your own balcony. Click here to view accommodation at Airlie Beach and if you see anything you like, be sure to call 1800 773 656 to make a reservation.
Could there be anything more relaxing than sailing amidst the 74 islands on a perfect day? If you can’t skipper yourself there are plenty of other charter options. From here you can sail to the Great Barrier Reef and snorkel amongst the largest living structure on the planet. I could go on and on about what’s to see and do at the Whitsundays, like swimming with turtles and visiting the historic aboriginal caves at Nara Inlet, but I think you’re better off checking it out yourself.
The Whitsundays is host to Australia’s most stunning beaches (arguably) and often voted in the top 10 beaches of the world – there’s no doubting it – if you’re looking for the beach vacation you’ve always dreamed of, the Whitsundays is the place to be.
