Beautiful island. Be aware that there’s it not much to do if you do the full day, and if you don’t swim. Also, the best reef and fishes are on the side which is not lifeguarded, so of course only go there if you are confident. I’m talking by a snorkeling point of view. I didn’t do the glass boat. The crocodile museum is okay. It stinks a bit and you’ll feel a bit sad cause these crocs are in little little pools. The feeding time was nice and those creatures are beautiful. I didn’t check the pool or the resorts amenities. The walk in the forest is nice and short.

Fantastic day on a beautiful island! If you want to see amazing corals- go snorkel pretty far out. It's still shallow but worth the swim. We had a spectacular rainbow during the boat ride, we saw turtles and I saw so many incredible fish and corals and anemone's. The island facilities were nice, food and cocktails available as well nice walks and pool. It's a day I'll cherish forever.

Had a good day and despite the numbers on the island there was still plenty of room to move and places to swim. Green Island Resort itself is dated and needs a bit of paint work and new decking. Limited food options which were expensive e.g large coffee $7, sandwiches were pre packed and $12, hot chips $12.
