Saw more fish, turtles and colorful corral than we did at Hastings & Saxon Reefs! Enjoyed the walk path to Nudey Beach - except for the corral section that killed our bare feet :( but the rock path was cool. Shame on the hotel resort...More

Yes Nudey Beach is visually beautiful, a small alcove making up the beach with crystal clear water and mountains in the distance. However like the rest of Fitzroy Island the beach itself is made up of pieces of dead coral, making it a challenge to...More

This is so worth a visit - it is quite beautiful and stunning - worth the boat trip to Fitzroy Island from Cairns - and even on a windy day it is quite stunning.

The beach is full of coral. It was a bit windy on the day we went so no swimming, but very relaxing.

The beauty of the this beach takes all of your worries away. The water is crystal clear with white sand and coral. The short hike to the beach is pretty cool too.

We went on a tour and really enjoyed Fitzroy island as there was so much to do. We kayaked, snorkelled, swam, walked through the forest to Nudey beach, ate and had a beer at the cafe. Definitely a wonderful way to spend a day!

Yes there are boats that take you over to the island. I think two different companies do say trips to the island. Just look up Fritzroy island Cairns
