5 Tropical Islands Almost Anyone Can Afford to Visit


Not everyone has the money to visit luxurious tropical islands for their vacation. Not everyone even gets to go on vacation each year. But dreaming about swimming in wonderfully clear waters and relaxing on a beautiful sand beach doesn’t have to be just a fantasy anymore. There are tropical destinations that will give you a sense of luxury and class, while not taking all your money.

The Queensland Islands are affordable and popular destinations where you can get more for your money’s worth.

1. Frazer Island

Frazer Island is the biggest island in the world and is listed as an Australian World Heritage Site. Besides the amazing and long Seventy-Five Mile Beach, there are lots of places to see and many cool things to experience on Frazer Island. On the eastern part of the island, there are the Colored Sands – cliffs in different colors (red, yellow, brown and orange) made of sand and sculpted naturally with the help of the elements. These cliffs are also known as the Pinnacles. So if you wish to explore the area a little, besides enjoying on the beach, this is one of the places to visit.

2. Lady Elliot Island


Besides being cheap and offering you a lot for a small amount of money, this island also gives you the best diving experience. When you get there, for the first time in your life you will see just how amazing a beach can be. You will have the opportunity to explore the underwater world and swim with different kinds of tropical fish, see giant turtles and relax, just swimming in the clearest blue waters you have seen, spending time at beaches with golden sand and sipping on a cold tasty cocktail. If this becomes too relaxing, you can also engage in a variety of water sports according to your liking.

3. Magnetic Island

It is not specifically clear why this island is called as it is, but let’s suppose it is because it has magnetic powers to attract you to come and enjoy the variety of activities it has to offer, such as horse riding and an abundance of water sports. This island is very close to the north Queensland coast and once you arrive you’ll never want to leave.

4. Lizard Island

Lizard Island is in the north part of Queensland, located on the northern part of the Great Barrier Reef. There are six islands that are collectively called Lizard Island. It is actually a group of islands where you can find top quality accommodation for low prices, and absolute privacy and peace. This is particularly attractive if you are looking to spend some romantic time with your loved one. But it is not all that peaceful – you can also engage in diving and snorkeling at almost any time, as these are the most popular activities on the island.

5. Hinchinbrook Island

Hinchinbrook Island is an amazing place where you can truly experience the wilderness that is somewhat tamed and safe. On this island, you will feel as if you were actually on a deserted island from which you will never want to return. The amazing sand beach will relax you by simply looking at it, and the palm trees on the beach will offer you some refreshing shade when you get enough of sun. The water is beautiful and blue and just the right temperature. Staying on this island will give you the best summer experience ever for a price that won’t hurt your wallet.
