Lizard Island Resort
Home to the largest collection of coral reefs in the world (with more than 400 varieties of coral), the Great Barrier Reef is deserving of its World Heritage Site status. Surrounded by a fringing reef, Lizard Island is home to a contemporary, Down-Under-casual resort that takes full advantage of the area's marine wonders. Care to observe century-old giant clams or swim with the massive — and amusingly curious — Potato Cod? You can take the introductory Discover Scuba, a PADI open water referral course (this must be booked ahead) and nocturnal dives. When not splashing around, hide away on one of 24 beaches, hang out on the private deck of your airy villa, indulge at the day spa or dine at Osprey's Restaurant.
