Lizard Island

Ultimate guide (February 2024)
Lizard Island is the northernmost island of Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Tropical beaches, great snorkeling in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, and all of this in a safe civilized country. This is really an outstanding place, though not unique. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
This island ranks #5 of the "Best islands in Oceania"
