Hi everyone.

Thailand is inexpensive once you get there. July is wet season in Thailand, so for a beach vacation, people usually recommend the Koh Samui area rather than Phuket / Andaman Sea beaches for less rain that time of year.

Have you considered staying in Australia to keep your travel costs down? I know it is winter in Australia then, but I thought that the northern part of Australia has a tropical climate.

Fiji is a short flight from Australia. Lots of resorts to chose from depending and what you want in a resort. Best beaches are found on the outer islands.

I'd look at Fiji.

Also, as Beachdreams mentioned, there are some nice beaches and islands in Queensland. It's an easy flight from Brisbane to Cairns.

I'd recommend the Gili Islands or Thailand, too. There area also lots of great hidden spots that I mention in Indonesia under Escape Guides on my website. For info about the Gili's, you can go to thiswaytoparadise.com/escape-guides/…. I'd recommend Air or Meno of those two. If you are in to diving, I'd go to Raja Ampat!
