Australia, Heron Island
Heron Island is a paradise island in the south of Great Barrier Reef, Australia. Its aerial views are similiar to those in Maldives or Fiji. But in reality, it is not quite a tropical paradise, though it is perfect in all respects. There are no palms, but everything else is just superb! There are beautiful trees and white sand ashore, while the water is clear with excellent diving and snorkeling on the home reef. There are even shipwrecks not far from the coastline. Birds are the only problem. There are a lot of them, and they always scream and make a lot of excrements, thus leading to unpleasant odor. / read more » /

Australia, Lady Elliot Island, lighthouse
Lady Elliot is an island in Capricorn Group, Australia. The beach is not bad, but not very comfortable due to the broken corals. As for the coastal snorkeling, it is great.

There are also many turtles and birds everywhere, while whales can often be met in the water. / read more » /

1. Hostels or apartments with kitchen.

2. Buy all food at supermarket.

3. Rent a car and choose parks with free entrance.
