Needless to say The Whitsunday Islands attract tourists from all over the world, whether its snorkeling & scuba diving the coral reefs, relaxing days spent on white sandy beaches or jumping out of an airplane to views of 74 islands dotted throughout bright blue seas there is something for everyone.
