East Bedarra Island Retreat

Queensland, Australia

At a glance

East Bedarra Island Retreat is a barefoot luxury beach villa with a private pool and two palm-fringed private beaches that are yours alone to enjoy. Perfect for couples on a romantic getaway, Bedarra Island is the only location in Australia that is built over the Great Barrier Reef and two private beaches, and is not a hotel or a resort.


Located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, between Cairns and the Whitsundays, Bedarra Island is a private island four kilometres off the coast of Mission Beach. This unique escape provides a more secluded alternative to the busier holiday centres nearby, still with proximity to the airports of Townsville and Cairns.

Couples on a romantic getaway will love…

A heavenly king-sized bed with rose petal greeting upon arrival. In the morning you will awake to magnificent views of the Coral Sea and its islands. Just steps away is your private pool – a tidal rock pool that replenishes with saltwater on every tide. The water is a comfortable temperature for swimming year round. Colourful reef fish and sea turtles are your only neighbours. At night, cocktail in hand, you can relax in the pool beneath a starry sky or enjoy your 3D moonlight cinema.

East Bedarra accommodation

The villa is built on the water’s edge and flanked by sheltered sandy coves where the only footprints are yours. After a day soaking up the island sunshine, enjoy the perfect temperature of the tidal rock pool right by your bedroom and sip Champagne beneath the starry night sky.

The East Bedarra Island Retreat can be reserved as one or two-bedroom accommodation, with an additional Queen suite enabling you to share the villa with friends or family if you wish.

Best room for two for a romantic escape

East Bedarra Island Retreat is exclusively yours and one of the most secluded Great Barrier Reef honeymoon destinations in Queensland. It offers a more private alternative to the Whitsundays honeymoon options to the south.

The beach villa is all yours during your honeymoon and it is right on the inviting waters of the Great Barrier Reef between two secluded palm-fringed coves. You’ll feel like castaways in your own private paradise where the only footprints in the sand will be yours. So don’t be shy – toss off those shoes (and clothes if you’re feeling cheeky) because you’re unlikely to see another soul until you return to civilisation.

Dining and leisure

At East Bedarra Island Retreat, your privacy and comfort are valued above all else. For this reason, the retreat is self-catering with a gourmet kitchen plus a Webber Q on your spacious deck. Quality foods and beverage provisions, exotic fruits and the freshest local seafood and produce can be coordinated, upon request, for your arrival. Let the Bedarra Island team take care of the details, so you can enjoy the journey to your private island retreat.

Included in the kitchen are some condiments in the fridge and dry stores pantry. If you’d rather leave your chef’s apron at home, choose from a heat-and-eat Masterchef lunch and dining menu which you can take from your freezer each day or have delivered by your private concierge.
