Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef
It sounds so dreamy: waking up to the sound of the waves gently kissing the shore from a ridiculously comfortable bed (or private hammock) and then diving into another realm to explore a kaleidoscope of colour and have encounters with friendly sea creatures. But at Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef, you can relieve that dream again and again by actually living it.
This eco-luxe wilderness getaway is perfectly positioned in the dunes of Cape Range National Park just outside Exmouth. Each of the luxury camp’s 15 safari tents boasts views of Ningaloo Reef. With easy access to UNESCO World Heritage-listed reef itself, it makes the four S’s – sleep, swim, snorkel and stargaze – a superb holiday itinerary to surrender to. Upgrade your seascape schedule by adding a guided splash with a humpback whale or whale shark or take part in a guided gorge tour.
