Haggerstone Island Beach Hut
Picture yourself sun-drenched, barefoot and castaway. Haggerstone Island is an untouched tropical paradise. With lush jungle, white sandy beaches as well as stunning fringing reefs.
The Haggerstone Island Beach Hut is positioned right on the beach. The most secluded of all room types on the island. This beautiful open-plan hut is made mostly of driftwood. It can sleep two adults or a family of three.
Open the large canvas shutters, and feel the balmy breeze come in straight off the ocean. Meanwhile, enjoy uninterrupted views out to the Great Barrier Reef. Additionally, a boardwalk will lead you to your private open shower and bathroom. All surrounded by coconut forest.
Where it all Began
Roy and Anna Turner arrived on Haggerstone Island in 1985. A large barge carried timber, fruit trees and chickens. They had all the necessities to create their little slice of paradise. Little did they know, they were to spend nearly six years alone on Haggerstone Island.
The Main House was the first building constructed. It’s a charming large pole home with a thatched roof. Every corner contains trinkets and treasures collected from around the island.
Breakfast and dinner are served here, with lunch usually out on the boat. Also, while we prepare dinner, sit by the fire pit and enjoy a glass of wine.
