  • Address: Low Island

Low Isles is a small coral cay off the coast of Port Douglas.

Lying on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef, it’s a fabulous spot for snorkeling and diving, thronged with hard and soft corals, tropical fish, reef sharks and turtles.

Cruises come out to Low Isles from Port Douglas for a conveniently close taste of the reef. There are no facilities on the island, just a lighthouse, but the surrounding shallow lagoon is an idyllic place for a swim or snorkel while your cruise vessel is moored offshore.

Practical Info

Made up of Low Island and the mangrove-topped Woody Island, Low Isles is 15 km (9.5 miles) north-east of Port Douglas. The trip to Low Isles from Port Douglas takes around 1.5 hours one way.
