384 Shute Harbour Rd, Airlie Beach QLD 4802, Australia
Airlie BeachBack on the mainland, Renee has included three nights at Airlie Beach, at the Coral Sea Resort, on her itinerary. The largest town on the Whitsunday Coast, this is a convenient base for taking advantage of all the activities that the area offers—spend your days snorkeling, sailing, or on a flight-seeing tour. At the end of your day, a stroll along the main street of Airlie Beach—Shute Harbour Road—offers pretty much everything you could want from a resort town, from quiet lunch spots to bars and dance clubs that stay open till late into the night.
