Luxury Great Barrier Reef Vacations | Lizard Island
A Luxury Great Barrier Reef Retreat Like No Other
One of our favorite luxury Great Barrier Reef resorts is Lizard Island. Uniquely located on Australia’s northern-most island, its 24 powdery-white beaches are nearly undisturbed except for an occasional footprint left behind by visitors, human and animal alike. You’ll discover the brilliant colors of coral reef gardens beneath crystal clear turquoise water, when you snorkel or scuba dive Cod Hole, one of Australia’s famous dive sites for interaction with large friendly fish. Swim with hundreds of varieties of fish species, turtles, and much more. Out of the water, your all-inclusive resort takes care of everything including accommodation, gourmet meals, unlimited non-alcoholic beverages, selected fine Australian wines, beer, spirits and sparkling wine, in room mini-bar, picnic hampers, use of non-motorized water sports and motorized dinghies.

Have the time of your life on Lizard Island!
OK you know this is going to be expensive. Is it worth it? Yes. It is the best of the Australian island resorts. Swim straight off the beach to some of the best coral in the world. Food that is world class. A wine list that is unrivaled. Views and walks that entertain for days. You will be a lot poorer but richer for the experience. Fred Barakat
