The Island

Bedarra Island is a private island. Ninety percent of the island is owned and managed by Bedarra Island Resort while the remaining ten percent is privately owned by a small group of owners. It is likely you not will see anyone else. There are full time caretakers should you need any assistance during your stay on the island.

Bedarra Island is located about five kilometres off the coast, just south of Mission Beach. The island is an exclusive destination with low visitor numbers. This has supported a pristine environment. The island has a mix of sandy white beaches, rocky beaches, mangroves, coral gardens and seagrass beds. There are two palm fringed sandy white beaches exclusive for your use. The mangroves are a natural nursery for fish - rays and baby sharks swim right up to the beach in ankle deep water. The waters surrounding the island are a haven for dugongs grazing on seagrass.
