We had a wonderful lunch here on our day at the lagoon. Fabulous salads made with local produce. Great barbequed meat and beer and wine available. We loved seeing the chooks and chicks feeding on coconuts. Take your passport and get it it stamped at the post office on the island.

Loved the scenery, the pristine waters & swaying palms. Good norkeling. We smirked at a row of white crosses marking freshly planted trees, one marked " the honourable Prime Minister Julia Gillard" .

with the smallest post office in the world, they will stamp your passport for a fun reminder. Gorgeous island with an amazing sandbar that you can walk out to

One foot island is beautiful. We snorkelled around a small reef and the amount of fish there was incredible, more than i have seen anywhere else. Definately worth the visit.

If you ever want to feel like you're on a paradise island, this is IT! From the cerulean blue of the sky to the deep turquoise of the sea rimmed with white sand and topped with juicy green - One-Foot Island is a feast for the eyes and an experience not to be missed.

Such a wonderful place for lunch with a beautiful lagoon as your backdrop! While on One Foot, don't forget to get your passport stamped and send off postcards with the unique One Foot Island postmark.
