Skype on Beach on GBR?
Does anyone know of any beach, resort, etc...that has WiFi reception directly on the beach anywhere in the Great Barrier Reef vicinity? We'd like to Skype our wedding vows renewal so our family back home can be a part of it. We'd really like to be directly on the beautiful sandy beach, not in a garden or resort/hotel wedding room or facility.
Anyone have any experience or ideas?
Thanks so much!

I doubt you could even get channel 10!

Most if it remote, wilderness not New York.

Thanks for the reply. That's what I figured. Didn't know if any of the resorts had Wifi that may reach to the beach. Not planning on being on computer much, but thought it would be nice to Skype to family so they could be included. Ah well.

McDonalds best bet, some other coffee shops but usually have to pay. Big money as well.

Not that I've tried any of these, yet, but this is link to area internet cafe's. I would really like to find wifi on a beach to Skype our vows. This lists an area of cafe's and resorts. Who knows? Maybe it will work for me.
Just thought I'd post incase someone else out there has a similar question.
