As the northern most resort on the Great Barrier Reef, and a luxury lodge of Australia, Lizard Island is truly secluded from the rest of the world. This is just one wonderful Lizard Island fact that makes it like nowhere else. Add 24 private beaches, and with only 40 suites and villas, that means a private beach for every guest, couple or group. The hour flight from Cairns allows you to take in the true majesty and scale of the reef, and the resort is literally on the reef - no long boat rides are needed to enjoy one of the greatest natural wonders of the world.
How to get there: Lizard Island is Australia’s northern-most island beach resort, located 240km north of Cairns and the best access point to the island. Regular flights are available to Cairns from all Australian Capital Cities, then it just a short drive from Cairns Airport to the East Air terminal for your 60 minute scenic flight over the Great Barrier Reef to Lizard Island.
More about Lizard Island...
Lizard Island’s villas and suites have been designed to be in harmony with the natural beauty of the island and its surrounding ocean waters. Floor to ceiling windows allow the outdoor vistas and natural light to stream in, changing the hue and mood as the day turns to evening. You never really feel like you are sitting inside, more so that you are at the very heart of this exclusive island setting.
The food and wine offered at Lizard Island is second to none; dine at the Salt Water restaurant for a simple and relaxed experience in an idyllic setting taking full advantage of the views along the seascape, spoil yourself with a gourmet picnic hamper on a deserted beach or choose from one of the two beautiful beach locations and enjoy a private beachside degustation dinner.
