Bedarra Island reopened this month on a private island off the Great Barrier Reef in North Queensland, Australia. It had been ravaged by Cyclone Yasi in 2011. The sustainable island resort is located about four miles off the coast of Mission Beach, surrounded by a tropical rain forest, and has just seven villas to accommodate up to 14 guests at one time. The secluded villas offer expansive ocean views with private outdoor areas, and four have private plunge pools. There is restaurant and bar, and activities include tennis, paddleboarding, snorkeling, scuba diving, nature-trail walks, fishing a private reef, and sailing charters. The all-inclusive rates start at about $950 a night. (+61.7.4068.8233, www.bedarra.com.au)
