The Whitsundays include 74 of the most beautiful Islands and beaches Australia has to offer. It is a great place for snorkeling, sailing and relaxing. A great place to stay is the Daydream Island Resort where it is so private you need a ferry ride just to get to it. The grounds include an outdoor movie theater, minigolf, giant size chess, plenty of water sports and even their own mini aquarium full of manta rays and sharks.
Also spend a day seeing the famous Whitehaven beach, the sight of the white sand and turqoise water is perfection. But be careful when swimming in the water, generally wet suits are necessary to avoid being stung in the water!
