It's a truth universally acknowledged that the way you arrive at a destination sets the tone for your experience in that destination. And so, there's really only one way to arrive at Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef, and that's by scenic flight. NK_Ningaloo from above1 NK_Ningaloo Turquoise Beach Having collected you from the airport, your pilot will whisk you in a 4-seater Cessna Skyhawk over the arid outback gorges of Western Australia's Cape Range National Park, to the powdery white beaches and crystalline waters of Ningaloo Reef beyond. From up above the world you'll likely spot the shadowy figures of the humpback whales, manta rays and whale sharks that call the reef home, as well as the remote eco-luxe camp you'll be staying in for the next few nights, set right on the glittering shores of the reef.

As you settle in to your luxurious glamping tent, complete with wooden floors, king-sized bed, 500-threadcount cotton sheets and a hammock out front, you'll watch kangaroos bouncing along the dunes out front. Two adventures are offered by the lodge each day, ranging from sunrise hikes through breathtaking red-walled gorges where you'll meet black-footed wallaroos, dingoes and echidnas, to snorkeling through coral reefs filled with turtles, rays and technicolor fish. The stars of the show, however, are the whale sharks, the largest species of fish in the world. Ningaloo is one of the best places on earth to see them, and a boat trip out on the reef will have you swimming alongside these gentle giants. When you're done exploring, you can let the afternoon simply slip away on Sal Salis' private beach with a glass of WA rosà © in hand, before indulging in a decadent three-course feast under a star-smattered sky.

Which means for the duration of your stay you'll be completely in the moment, both with your travel companion, and with those heart-achingly beautiful landscapes.

A 90-minute flight gets you to Exmouth, then it's a 90-minute drive to Sal Salis. See NK_Sal Salis sunset NandaHaensel3 by Nina Karnikowski
