Great Barrier Reef Vacation – How to get there.

It is pretty much easy to access the Reef from Cairns which is a small coastal city in Australia. There are sometimes direct flights to Cairns from North American origins like Los Angeles so getting there would definitely not be a hassle or a problem.

Once you land, you can almost instantly start your adventure of the Great Barrier Reef and the surrounding islands. And while on the topic of the surrounding islands, you will be happy to know that many of them are actually resort islands that have the perfect lodging and dining facilities for island vacations.

Islands like Whitsunday Islands, Lady Elliot and Fraser are some of the most popular ones for couples visiting that side of the world to share a romantic vacation.

Romantic Things to do on a Great Barrier Reef Vacation

Hands down, the most popular activity done along the Great Barrier Reef is snorkeling. A lot of the reef is very close to the surface of the water which makes snorkeling over the top of the reef a possibility when there is high tide. The waters around the Great Barrier Reef are also very calm, which makes scuba-diving an equally popular activity. You and your partner can hold hands while observing the underwater beauty.

On days that you don’t want to get wet, there are great boat trips from Port Douglas heading to the Reef. Some of them are actually glass bottomed boats that provide a very good view of the beauty of the reefs.

Some of the most popular reefs that you can visit include Green Island, Michaelmas Cay, Fitzroy Island and Inter-Reef Gardens. There are many Great Barrier Reef vacation planning companies that plans day trips to the reefs for diving or snorkeling. These trips usually last for the whole day from about 8 AM until 5 PM. Couples can pretty much spend the whole day observing the barrier reefs and the beauty that they have to share.

Once you are done exploring the underwater world and its colorful tenants you can lounge on the beach or enjoy a romantic sunset dinner.
