The Whitsundays - Australia

The Place: For our honeymoon we took a trip to Airlie Beach to stay at a nice little place overlooking the sea and the Whitsunday islands from high up on a hillside.
Some features: We were visited daily by one or more cockatoos looking for a snack or two. Spent a day heading out to the islands for some snorkelling and to see one of the beautiful white beaches, Whitehaven, which instead of having sand, is made up of a very fine white silica. We relaxed at the  'Lagoon' on Airlie Beach which is essentially a massive swimming pool right on the beach front. Our few days of relaxing at the sea was exactly what was needed after a few busy weeks of planning our wedding and relocating to Australia. It was bliss!
