Here’s the deal, international travel is looking like a pipe dream at the moment so we’ve found the very trip that will satisfy your drinking spritz on the Amalfi Coast cravings. It’s called—Camp Island.

Located in the northern part of the Whitsundays, this private island sits in Queensland’s world heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef and it’s exactly the type of island you’d wish to be stranded on. The island features one mega lodge which connects four villas that sleep two people each.

The maximum number of guests you can have on the island is eight at one time and each night will set you back $1800 (you’ll pay the same nightly rate regardless of how many people you invite). There’s a three-night minimum stay so we’ve gone and done the quick math for you and calculated that it’s just $225 per person each night if you invite your seven closest friends. Might we remind you that you’ll have the entire island to yourself?

As for what you can do on Camp Island, the possibilities are really endless. Go snorkelling all day long, take on the double kayak, jump on a stand-up paddleboard, go fishing, walk around the entire island, watch the sunrise or set, pick up a racket on the tennis court, dapple in some beach cricket—the island is all yours.
