TravelPod Member ReviewsMartinique on Macrossan Port Douglas
What can I say...was supposed to stay a week and stayed 15 days. If you're looking for clinical large resort accommodation then this may not be for you but I am quite particular about the feel and cleanliness of a place, whilst wanting somewhere different. This was exactly what I was looking for. Right near the beach, owners are intelligent and friendly. Couldn't see any other accommodation I'd have preferred and took a cycle all round town!

Woke up to fantastic views again and this time we were blessed with a rainbow. We had to be up early as being picked up at just after 8, so it was a quick breakfast and throw things into bags. The weather was looking good, the sea looked calm and after some early rain, the skies were now blue.

The rain had eased a bit, so we headed ...
... manned by 2 chaps but they also have to look after the island. We put on stinger suits,flippers,masks and snorkels and then it was into the sea for some fabulous snorkelling amongst the coral making sure we didn't touch it. Another roller coaster ride back to land and it was time to spend an afternoon in the pub with our new friends Gerard and Ailenna from Sydney who we met on the boat ...
... and a trip to abbatoir swamp for a geocache (which Michelle had to find) and surprise a bit of birdwatching. Most of the birds seemed to be in the carpark as usual as we walked down to the bird hide but there wasn't much there so we went back to the carpark for another look.We then went on to Mt Malloy township for a fruit smoothy and then back in time for a quick ...
Yesterday evening we enjoyed a dinner called "Sounds of Silence". This is a special dinner where you are taken before sun set to dine essentially sitting on a sand dune half way between Uluru and Katia. There were about 30 of us delivered by coach along a dirt track and we were met with sparkling wine and canapés as we watch the sunset, before dining on a selection of bush inspired buffet, and no it was not the disgusting stuff they make the ...
