The only resort located directly on the shores of the Great Barrier Reef, Lizard Island offers an incredible essence of natural privacy amid its twenty-four white-sand beaches. The shorelines here offer a haven of isolation from the rush of the outside world and are a perfect entrance to the crystal-clear waters of the Great Barrier Reef. Choose paddleboarding or a motorised dinghy to glide across the waters, or even a glass-bottom sea kayak to admire the colourful collection of marine life along the seabed.
Scuba-diving opportunities are endless around Lizard Island. Stay close to the isle and explore its beautiful fringing reefs - accessed directly from the pristine beaches - or just a short boat ride away, explore the colourful Outer Reef, including the world-famous Cod Hole, where you can expect the curious Potato Cod to inspect you up close. No matter your diving ability, Lizard Island and its incredible natural marine surroundings are sure to leave you with unforgettable underwater memories.
Enjoy truly unique eco-tourism experiences throughout the year at Lizard Island. For example, the month of January is a key time for Green Tree Frogs to breed, while in May, Green Sea Turtles feed all along the coastline. Fast forward to September and Humpback Whales make an appearance in the bay. The entire year is a treasure trove of animal encounters and you're unlikely to miss out, whichever month you visit.
The luxurious Essentia Day Spa offers a range of spa rituals and treatments inspired by nature, including the exclusive La Biosthetique skincare. Guests can choose from a variety of spa packages to relax and rejuvenate in tranquil surroundings.
