Hinchinbrook Island Resort, Hinchinbrook Island, Australia
Why It’s Unique: Hinchinbrook, a 96-acre national park with lush rainforests, rugged mountains, and coarse sandy beaches, has just one option for accommodations: the Island Resort, a secluded hideaway with 15 roomy tree-house bungalows, each with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, small kitchen, private balcony and bath, and easy beachfront access.
Access: Winding timber boardwalks.
What to Do: Stroll one of the island’s 11 secluded beaches, and in the evening relax at the Island Resort’s bar.
