With increased flights from Qantas making it even easier to visit more of Western Australia's hidden gems, it's the perfect opportunity to experience a unique getaway this summer.

WA is home to some extraordinary locations such as Geraldton, nestled in the heart of the gorgeous Batavia Coast and close to the Abrolhos Islands.

Take a stroll along the boardwalk at the picturesque Batavia Coast Marina, or indulge in some windsurfing, fishing, surfing or diving at one of the many beaches dotted throughout the area.

If you're looking for holiday accommodation, newly expanded Mantra Geraldton will fit the bill perfectly.

An additional 25 fully self-contained two-bedroom apartments were added in September, giving guests a great view over the marina and convenient access to an all-new shopping and dining precinct in Geraldton.

Geraldton is famous for being one of the sunniest cities in the entire country, basking in an average 11 hours of sunshine every day. It's the perfect location to escape to for a summer break - with plenty of exciting watersports on offer, you'll enjoy every minute of your stay in the city.

Here are just a few of the new sports you can try your hand at once you hit the waves in Geraldton.

Take advantage of the conditions and challenge yourself with a windsurfing or kitesurfing lesson - you can hire all the equipment you need nearby and there are plenty of experts on hand to help you ride the waves in no time.

Coronation Beach is one of the most popular windsurfing and surfing spots beloved by locals, hosting a variety of competitions throughout the year. Located just 32 km north of Geraldton, it's a great spot to visit to test out your newfound skills.

Fishing, boating and diving

If you love a bit of fishing, the Greenough Rivermouth, Point Moore and Separation Point are great spots for catching a variety of species such as bream, whiting and herring.

Alternatively, there are some great diving locations along the Batavia Coast that cater for amateurs through to experts such as Drummond Cove, and Champion Bay is the perfect spot to indulge in some sailing.
