Bedarra Island Bedarra’s beauty is the natural understatement of tropical splendor: The singular silence of the rainforest where a thick carpet of fallen leaves passes softly underfoot in muted tones of filtered sunlight. The majestic presence of huge tumbled granite boulders rising from a vivid sea. The gentle lapping of clear blue water on sunlit sand as you discover a hidden cove where time stands still. With its sweeping beaches of pure golden sand bounded by long-established gardens, Bedarra Hideaway offers a unique combination of natural delights.
Each fully-appointed villa reflects the beauty of its surroundings, a splitlevel design with a hint of Eastern mystery provides cool privacy with lush foliage framing a view of the sapphire sea.
