Coral Bay

Dining Under The Skies

Mention Australia and the Great Barrier Reef would be atop any traveler's list. Largest reef system in the world, it offers a sight so spectacular far flung visitors flock by the millions to see it each year. So naturally we chose to go against the grind and opted to visit the 2nd largest reef colony at Ningaloo Reef. Cry "Sacrilege!" all you want, but jostling with mad summer crowds and whiny kids on my total-chill-out holiday - so not my thing.

Apart from having a pristine beach and vividly colorful reefs all to yourself (with only a hundred or so like-minded and wise holiday makers to share the views with), the pub grub is pretty good too. Nothing better to end a long day of sun, sand and sea with. Or in our case, snorkeling with the fishes in what feels like a life size aquarium.

Can't resist cooking meat on the barbie. And the backpackers at Coral Bay offers the perfect pit for our cookout.
