Call me crazy, but every time I venture to a new tropical Island, I feel like some sort of character from ‘The Beach’. Unfortunately, the trips never result in Leonardo Di Caprio. Darn!
Situated just 4KMs off the Cassowary Coast’s Mission Beach, Dunk Island is the largest island in the Family Island’s National Park. Dotted with fringing coral and home to rolling mountains and sandy beaches, the island is a lush paradise that is just that little bit off the beaten track.
Having suffered a devastating hit from Cyclone Yasi back in 2011, the once-popular resort remains closed to the public. Luckily, the island itself allows day trips so that tourists and locals alike can explore it’s undeniable beauty.
You can while away days on the beach front’s cute cafe, munching on fresh prawns and sipping cocktails. Or if you are wanting to unleash your inner Captain Cook, you can take a hike on one of the island’s scenic walking tracks. **Warning: Excess sweating**
For a beach-hopper like me, this clear turquoise paradise is a big fat tick! I might head back with a tent, the other half and a life-time supply of chocolate and become some sort of literal beach bum.
For this walk in paradise wilderness, I opted for this lightweight Style Moi play suit. Despite it’s typical Autumnal color, it’s super cool and is a surprising champion at keeping the sweat at bay! I added this suedette, fringe necklace for a little bit of a boho vibe.
As for the hat and sunnies, they are my saving grace when it comes to this tropical heat. ‘Slip slop and slap’ (sunscreen that is)!
Do you have any islands I can add to my wanderlust list?
