IELTS Speaking topic: A place near water

Describe a place near water (such as a river, a lake or the ocean) that you enjoyed visiting.
You should say:
where this place was
what you did at this place
who you went there with
and explain why you liked this place.

Let me tell you about my travels at the end of 2012 to the Great Barrier Reef, which is located in the Coral Sea, off the coast of Queensland, Australia. I was keen on going there because it is a paradise for travelling and photography.

I stayed there for about ten days with my family. I really enjoyed the laid-back beach, experienced the memorable diving trips to see the magnificent coral and the magical marine life; moreover, I once picked one of the fantastic and uninhabited islands to camp for two days. Besides, I took my camera with me to capture the stunning natural scenery, the painted sunset for example. It is really a memorable trip.

I once watched a BBC documentary introducing the Great Barrier Reef, I was attracted by the colourful undersea world and the superb scenery. Moreover, I would like to go there with my son. I want him to experience the natural wonders during his childhood as well as getting close to it.
