It always takes a couple of days to unwind at the beginning of a richly deserved holiday and a week board Infinity Pacific affords the chance to fully relax and venture further afield. One of Australia’s most popular cruising destinations is the Queensland Whitsundays, a string of 74 mostly uninhabited islands protected by the precious world heritage listed Great Barrier Reef.

Guests can fly in and board the luxury superyacht then make for tropical jewels such as Hamilton Island and nearby Whitehaven Beach, regularly voted one of the world’s top ten most beautiful beaches for its pure white silica sand. Continue to explore among the islands before upping anchor and departing for the outer reef and the colourful watery depths that make snorkelling among the hundreds of varieties of fish and coral such a breathtaking experience.
