We were here 35 years ago and delighted to come back and find it is still a low key resort ( albeit with many extras that weren't available then!) ) with the focus being the reef and its conservation.. Accommodation is basic but adequate and ideal for a short holiday where you want the focus to be discovering the island...

Lady Elliot Island has been my dream since 2011, when I read about this place in Lonely Planet. In May 2016 my dream became true. Or actually it was much better than a dream! We loved every single moment on the island - it's such a beautiful place full of birds, manta rays, great snorkeling and diving! The food was...

The staff and the diving get a 10/10 from us! A fabulous long weekend away with crystal clear water, magnificent sunsets on the beach with a relaxing beverage in hand, amazing food and incredibly fun, experienced dive staff. We can't fault LEI. Thank you for a fabulous experience. We'll be back. :-)

I cannot find enough OMG words to describe what a wonderful place #LadyElliotIsland is and we took no photos cause we were living in the moment and enjoying the experience. The highlight for me was my 17 year old gurgling with excitement under water as inquisitive green turtle swam up to us and pushed his shell up so she could...

We loved this place. Both my eight and eighteen year old loved it! It's a very special experience. The snorkeling is fantastic. We saw turtles, sting ray, manta ray, Reef shark, plus a bunch of beautiful colored fish. The dive shop folks are helpful and you do not need any of your own equipment. I was happy that I had...

This is an excellent place to enjoy. From the staff, to the food to the wildlife every moment was extraordinary. We saw mantas, turtles in the water and laying their eggs. Multitudes of bird life and the best coral and fish that we have ever seen in the world. The flight was magnificent. You have to plan a trip soon.

Lady Elliot lets you experience the wonders of the great barrier reef up close and personal. We stayed in a unit next to the beach and during the day enjoyed the laguna, the beach, the reef (diving and snorkling) and at night we there were lots of turtles laying eggs on the beach even almost next to our cabin. The...

Had a fantastic couple of days on Lady Elliott Island. From moment we arrived to moment we left staff were extremely friendly, attentive and informative. We stayed in an Eco cabin which is great fun and choice of food was excellent. Great time snorkelling, seeing everything in its natural habitat and the island itself is beautiful. Great to see educational...

A very friendly and laid-back atmosphere. Even snorkel gear is free without even signing for it. They provide sunscreen at the dive shop for free. Snorkeling is great right off the beach for both beginners and experienced people, so you don't have the expense of paying for a boat trip, unlike Heron Island, where you cannot snorkel off the beach....
