For many years, I’ve loved the idea of getting a small group of friends together, hiring a sail boat and sailing around the Whitsunday Islands in Queensland, exploring hidden coves, deserted islands, skinny dipping, sunbathing with a cold beer in hand and having a fire on a deserted beach.

It’s one of those holidays that would have to be with the right group of friends. Locking yourself on a boat for a week or more with people takes some picking and choosing, but could be one of those amazing holidays you never forget.
