Green Island National Park

Snorkel from the beach

Head out to Green Island National Park, a rainforest-clad cay built entirely by coral, and fringed by sandy beaches that slope into clear, blue-green water. Spend an afternoon snorkelling in the shallows or hire a kayak and glide over the reef looking for turtles and stingrays.
