Green Island Care
Green Island Resort is widely regarded as one of the world’s most eco-sensitive tourism developments. Structurally, all resort buildings and infrastructure (e.g. boardwalks) were built with minimal vegetation clearing, in many cases the structures were built around the trees. No building extrudes above the tree canopy, therefore preserving the natural appearance of the island from the water, shoreline and air.
Green Island Resort has been awarded Advanced Ecotourism Certification for preservation and commitment to the island’s rainforest and reef surrounds, and the management of this world class eco-sensitive resort.
