Lizard Island is the only resort located on a 1,013-hectare National Park and literally on the Great Barrier Reef, Lizard Island offers seclusion and natural privacy that you will cherish.
With only 40 rooms and villas and 24 private beaches, escape to your own private beach for a day exploring the reef, taking in the incredible nature around you and all while never seeing another person. In a world of over 7.5 billion people – this experience is designed for just two. Exploring and experiencing Lizard Island can be enjoyed by taking part in a number of guided tours, either to the inner and outer reefs, the Research Station, or on nature walks and challenging hikes to the top of Cook’s Look.
Alternatively, you can explore the island on a self-guided tour, taking in the beauty at you own pace. Lizard Island hosts no more than 82 guests and we aspire to deliver an experience, ambiance and service that is warm, welcoming, professional and passionate.
