Kangaroo Island, South Australia

Best Beaches: Vivonne Bay, Red Banks, Emu Bay

Whoever coined the expression ‘romantic isolation’ surely visited Kangaroo Island, Australia’s third-largest island. There’s so much isolation on Kangaroo Island it’s almost unsettling to the average city-slicker, but you won't want to share the second-to-none views with crowds anyway. Imagine the outback positioned on some of the world’s most striking coastline and you start to get the picture. 

On the stunning white sands of Australia’s most pristine beach, Vivonne Bay, the only company you’ll have among an ocean of turquoise is the crayfish boats that lie in wait for their next big haul. At Emu Bay, dolphins will happily swim with you, while you can kayak past sunbathing seals in the Red Banks.
