I will try in this article to describe the most beautiful place I have ever seen in my life. I will remember all my life these three days, the beauty and the purity of the landscapes that I could discover.
Near Cairns, northeast of Australia, is the Whitsundays archipelago, consisting of 74 islands.
Discovered by James Cook, it is today one of the most beautiful sites in the world. The beaches of white sand and translucent blue waters shelter an extraordinary underwater fauna. It’s literally … Heaven!
The most pleasant climate is between May and September, especially in July / August, where the weather is most favorable. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country.
We rented AirBnb accommodation in the small resort of Airlie Beach, which allowed us to do the excursions we wanted.
We booked two cruises with the company « Ocean Rafting » which made us discover the islands of the north and the islands of the south.
Snorkeling allowed us to see magnificent corals and fish of all kinds. We were totally immersed in their environment. Nevertheless it is necessary to be very careful to the jellyfish and to bathe only with the wetsuit.
The largest of the islands of the archipelago is Whitsunday Island and is particularly known for its white sandy desert place: Whiteheaven Beach. It has been ranked among the most beautiful beaches in the world. Over 7 km in length, it offers a fine bluish white sand, composed of 98% silica.
We were able to walk through the island to access a viewing platform that offered a breathtaking view of Hill Inlet. A real postcard, a dream come true. It’s hard to believe it’s real, it’s so beautiful. The sandbanks mingle with the turquoise water to form a series of pale, white, green and blue bands.
Do not hesitate to contact me for rates and availability. I will be happy to help you organize your stay to enjoy a maximum and to keep an unforgettable memory.
Depending on the period, dolphins and small lemon sharks can be observed because the water is very clear and warm and they can come to the beaches of the islands.
The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef with more than 2900 reefs, 1500 species of fish and crustaceans and 900 islands covering an area of 344,400 km².
The Great Barrier Reef can even be seen from space, constitutes the largest structure created by living organisms of the world and has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1981. CNN labeled it as one of the Seven Wonders of the world.
Unfortunately, due to climate warming and disruption, marine pollution and fishing, the reef has lost more than half its coral surface since 1985.
I believe this is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen in my life. It’s absolutely incredible. It’s hard to believe that it really exists so it’s perfect.
I was able to admire this spectacle from a seaplane, the best way to see the spectacular Heart Reef but it is also possible to dive for experienced divers.
The tourism industry generates more than 2 billion dollars spent by more than 2 million visitors.
It was the real paradise… Like a dream!
