You definitely won’t be feeling like a castaway when you set foot on this island. Oh no, not when you catch your first glimpse of the luxe Green Island Resort, with its two swimming pools, swanky suites and smattering of on-site services. Truthfully? It might even be enough to have you considering a permanent island holiday.
Green Island Resort has two styles of suite available – Reef and Island Suites – but both are just as luxurious as each other. Think king-size beds, private balconies with pool or rainforest views, free in-house movies and plush bathrobes so comfortable you’ll be reluctant to change into your swimmers. However, it’s past your suite’s front door where the true treasures lie.
Green Island is brimming with the kind of opportunities that will make your Facebook friends, well, green with envy. As a national park and popular day visitor island in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, you can revel in an array of activities. Grab some snorkelling or scuba gear and wade out from the island’s pristine beaches to discovered brightly-coloured coral and fish you might recognise from David Attenborough docos (or Finding Nemo). Those who prefer to keep their hair dry won’t have to miss out though, as there's also a glass-bottomed boat tour. Green Island doubles as a major turtle habitat, so keep an eye out for these graceful creatures. Other thrills include parasailing and scenic helicopter flights.
Back on dry ground, test out your spike skills with beach volleyball, wander through the rainforest, scramble over beach rocks or kick back on a sunlounger and do nothing at all. When the growls of your stomach become too loud to ignore (soaking up the sun’s rays can be tough work, after all), make for one of the resort’s three dining options. Midday and afternoon snacks can be taken at the Canopy Grill or Reflections Pool Bar, and evening munchies can be sated with dinner at Emeralds Restaurant.
Located in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. 45 minutes from Cairns by fast catamaran.
