Just what we needed - our Island paradise

Just came back from Palm Bay resort and what an amazing time we had. The staff were extremely friendly and always helpful. Besides relaxing in a villa on the beach there were plenty of things to do around the island including snorkelling, hiking, tennis etc. Plenty of great wildlife around the resort too including Norman the resident Curlew!

Palm Bay Resort is Highly recommended!

My husband and I stayed here for 5 days last year, it is just paradise, from the moment you see it to the moment you leave.
We stayed right on the beach front and had the most beautiful view to wake up to.
The activities are great and I would suggest doing the walks around the island also get up early enough to see the sun rise! We also took a zig zag tour which was one of the best decisions we made!

Next time we come back to Australia we will be seeing you again


A stay in paradise

Our wildest expectations exceeded! Tranquil, breathtaking and serene, this was hands down the best holiday we ever had! Comfortable & beautiful accommodation in a small, nature lovers paradise.
Take a walk in the natural forests surrounded by hosts of butterflies like a scene from Avatar, paddle in the peaceful bay on free canoes, or go by sea plane to the Great Barrier Reef, and yes, that famous heart is real. It is humbling to be so close to one of the world's greatest natural wonders.
