Lizard Island

Lizard Island, Australia’s northern-most island beach resort, is truly secluded from the rest of the world. It is uniquely located right on the Great Barrier Reef, 240 kilometres north of Cairns, and has twenty four powdery-white beaches, over 1000 hectares of national park, forty understated beach luxe suites, Azure spa, and the bluest of clear blue ocean views from every angle. The beaches are undisturbed but for occasional footprints. Coral reef gardens fringe the island shimmering in brilliant colour beneath clear turquoise water. Giant clams laze on the seabed as nosey Potato Cod keep watch. Here, the marine life is renowned the world over. Lizard Island seduces with a multitude of reef and water activities. Sensational diving opportunities abound, including the famous Cod Hole or snorkel straight from the beach to experience coral gardens, brightly coloured tropical fish and giant clams. The nearby Ribbon Reefs are renowned for some of the best big game fishing in the world. These must-do reef activities are delivered by a highly professional and fun team at the resort’s Beach Club. Lizard Island has a stunning choice of private villas, suites, or a pavilion. In addition to the reef and water activities, secluded picnics on private beaches, superb dining in the open and expansive main lodge area and indulgent spa treatments complete the Lizard Island experience.
