Possibly one of the most beautiful beaches in Australia, the Whitsunday Islands are a must see destination when travelling the East Coast.
On board a three day and two night boat, Tongarra, we explored the Whitsunday Islands, snorkelling the crystal seas, sunbathing on the white sands and sleeping on the open deck. It does all sound very magical the way I’m describing it and for the most part- with the paradise beaches and the sapphire seas -it was. However, Tongarra was a very basic, very budget trip with one minute cold showers and sleeping on a cramped deck. Still, can’t complain really, it was all well worth it to see the islands.
Despite the horrific downpour of rain on the first night, the second day of exploration of the beach and a snorkel was a beautiful, dazzling day. We sunbathed on the beach and submerged ourselves in the crystal clear water. Honestly, the closest thing to paradise I have ever seen.
The pictures explain it all really.
