Being part of the Great Barrier Reef system, Lizard Island is great for snorkelling. Ten feet from the shore and it is like the entire cast of Finding Nemo is swimming by through the coral. Unfortunately, we have no pictures of the life under the water but no picture could really do justice to how beautiful it is anyway.
The resort also has little dinghies stocked with a made to order picnic hamper that guests can take out on their own to one of the secluded beaches.
We also went on a full day snorkelling excursion to the outer reef where we saw even more spectacular ocean life. It was like having National Geographic Special play out before your eyes.
