Long Island is the closest island to the mainland, and as suggested by the name, is 9km long while only being 400m wide at its widest point! Long Island is mostly national park and has 13km of walking trails to explore the plentiful native flora and fauna on this dramatic natural landscape. Surrounded by secluded bays and expansive coral fringing reefs great for snorkellling and beachcombing, Long Island is a quiet paradise for visitors seeking seclusion and tranquility.
