Whitsundays, Australia: The Perfect Winter Escape

Whitsundays is the newest destination for winter escapes. The collection of 74 islands is located off the Queensland coast in Australia and is a prime location for diving, snorkeling, white sandy beaches and warm waters. The islands are connected by two airports although you will find a lot of expensive yachts docking as well. Obviously, the islands are a great destination for sailing and any kind of water sport or activity.

If you are looking for land adventures, Whitsunday Island is packed with camping sites that can be rented out. If you are feeling daring, you can get a birds-eye view of the natural landscape by helicopter or skydiving. It’s also where you will find the popular Whitehaven beach with its pure white sand and crystal clear waters. It also has great restaurants that serve the best local seafood. If you prefer some privacy, Long Island has various resorts which are eco-friendly. It’s the perfect place to relax with a cocktail (or three).
