Experiences/activities: our Top 5

1) Kayaking to the Reef
2) Snorkeling in the middle of the great barrier
3) Relaxing on the beach!
4) Having our breaths taken away at the view of the “overwater” bungalow
5) Hitch hiking all over the islands

If we could change something:

– The islands are much bigger than we thought, without a mean of transport, either a car or a bike, the only hope is to hitch hike
– We booked an accommodation far off from the coast and the free beaches… mistake!
– Generally, everything is quite pricey… too much to be able to travel following the real backpacker spitit
