In the Great Barrier Reef, nature’s luxury is all around. It’s one of the most unique places anywhere on Earth, and it’s teeming with life. Filled with kaleidoscopic coral reefs, sea turtles, dolphins, and, in just a few places, people.
Here, you have the beaches virtually to yourself. Those footprints in the sand? Very likely yours and yours alone. If you’re the kind of person who needs their own space, you’ve definitely picked the right vacation.
Not everybody is built for such a remote and secluded world. But if you have a thirst for adventure and long to see what few others have, you’ll love this.
The Great Barrier Reef is proof that heaven is sandier than you think.
