Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort
Lady Elliot Island, Great Barrier Reef, Australia
Lady Elliot Island is a coral cay at the southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef. It is located within a protected "Green Zone" that provides sanctuary for over 1,200 species of marine life, including an abundance of manta rays, turtles and healthy corals. This small eco-resort is the island's only lodging, designed to have minimal impact on a fragile ecosystem. Rooms are simple but comfortable, just steps from the beach, with en suite bathroom, private balcony, a mini fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, and a microwave. Meals are served in the beachfront dining room. So that you can truly connect with nature, there are no telephones, television or radios in the rooms. There is limited Wi-Fi available in the restaurant, however. Enjoy the saltwater pool or the on-site reef education center. Visitors are encouraged to take home more than just photos and memories, but also a passion for conservation and sustainable management of the environment and natural resources, particularly the Great Barrier Reef.
