Almost three million metres long, Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is unique in the world. Listed as a World Heritage Site, this natural formation covering 345,000 km2 is fascinating, even observed from space. It is the perfect place to spend an authentic holiday.
Enjoy the Great Barrier Reef according to your preference
With more than a thousand species of fish, 400 species of corals and as many varieties of algae, there are a thousand and one ways to enjoy the Great Barrier Reef. You can decide to enjoy the beauty of this landscape with its unique panorama in the air. In the plane, you will observe the different shades of the sea, punctuated by the different coral archipelagos. Seeing the ocean clearly cut in half, one of the sides being navy blue and the other blue, is a real feast for the eyes. To explore the seabed, semi-submersibles and glass-bottomed boats make it possible to observe, in complete comfort, the festival of colours and shapes of corals and fish.
To get even closer to the wonders that populate the Great Barrier Reef, why not try scuba diving? Equipped with complete diving equipment or simply armed with a snorkel and goggles, you will not fail to be dazzled by Australia’s fantasy and its two coral reefs.
Enjoy a moment of peace
Everyone has the right to enjoy the Great Barrier Reef landscape in any way they choose. Do you want peace and quiet to fully enjoy this dream landscape? It is, in fact, possible for you to walk in the middle of the corals. To avoid getting wet, wait until low tide so that sandy paths can be accessible, so you can walk around surrounded by corals. Imagine enjoying the gentle sea breeze on white sand and surrounded by a panorama worthy of fantasy films, all your senses will be satisfied. If one day is not enough, you can spend the night camping on an uninhabited island in the archipelago.
Whoever loves protects!
However, this small piece of paradise, the Great Barrier Reef, is in danger. Global warming, mass tourism and many other parameters are gradually killing corals and, indirectly, the species that depend on them. It is for this reason that we must protect it by respecting this wonder of nature during our visit. In addition, by visiting it, we support the Australian government in its efforts to protect this wonderful place.
