About Bedarra Island

Bedarra is an escape island. Somewhere to lose yourself in the most perfect tropical scenery. Sure, you can be pampered if you want to be, but you can also be entirely on your own. There are just nine villas on the island and a maximum of 18 guests, so really the best places to stay on Bedarra are limited to a collection of near-perfect private cabins.

What Not To Miss

  • Check out the local wildlife, including crocodiles, with a boat tour of the mangroves.
  • Alternatively, for something more relaxing - chill out on the beach with beautiful golden sand and stunning blue water.
  • For thrillseekers, there are opportunities for white water rafting.
  • You can also scuba dive, sea kayak, snorkel, fish, play tennis, explore the rainforest or the reef, and relax in this haven just ten kilometres off the coast from the mainland.

Our selection of the best places to stay in Bedarra allow visitors to really make the most of this slice of paradise.
