The natural beauty of Fitzroy Island is breath taking.  Hearing the coral chime with the flow of the waves and having direct access to snorkelling from the shoreline is wonderful. There is not jet ski hire at Fitzroy Island creating a very peaceful environment. 

The resort itself has a fabulous pool, swim up pool bar, cinema and small supermarket that stocks the basics.
Please note that if you do intend on self-catering, it may be an idea to bring some food with you from the mainland.

The island is surrounded in beautiful fringing reefs which are teeming with marine life. The best snorkelling is off the rocks between Welcome Bay and Nudey Beach. Expect to see Turtles, tropical fish and many colourful corals.

Internet is available in public areas and the main building at a small cost.  Mobile phone service is available on the Island is variable and not in all locations.
