My husband and I spent our anniversary here (we live in Cairns) and can't believe people come from all over the world to have a Great Barrier Reef Island experience here and pay the $$$$ they do. The island and resort only caters to the the Day Tourist market and if you are a resort guest the only place to hide from the swarm of day tourists on this tiny island is at the resort pool interior to the resort with no view of the beach. Once the swarm leaves at 4:30 that arrived at 9 you find you can now come out to roam but don't expect anything to be open. If you have the money go to Lizard Island, or on a medium budget go the Fitzroy Island a great value. I have noticed that Fitzroy has started some day tours as well hope they don't ruin it. The amount of fish seen a Green Island snorkeling under the pier is better than Ftizroy but Fitzroy has more snorkeling area and chances to see more variety. Go on day trip snorkeling withe the dive shop.
