Marine Life on Green Island

The reefs surrounding Green Island Resort support a diverse range of habitats for a wide range of tropical marine life. 

You can experience the unique underwater world surrounding Green Island Resort by snorkelling, diving or by glass bottom boat. Seagrass beds support a wide range of animals, from juvenile fish that use the grass for protection from predators to large sea turtles and dugong that feed on the seagrass. The reef around Green Island has over 190 different types of hard corals and over 100 types of soft corals.

There are two significant habitats:

  • The seagrass beds in the shallows.
  • The reef that starts shallow and continues into the depths. 

These are great spots for some unforgettable holiday photos.
