Most homes have solar power and water tanks but with Thursday Island (the capital of the Torres Strait) right next to Prince of Wales Island its not isolated. Muralug is the main beach and one of the closest to Thursday Island. Muralug Beach has a garbage collection service and landline phone. Collis Beach and Country Woman's Beach are the next closest beach to Prince of Wales Island and offer larger blocks with fewer residents. They are more exclusive but have no landline phone or garbage collection services. Rates on Prince of Wales are minimal at around $400 per year. Long Beach and Frenchmans Beach are further away from Thursday Island but have beaches to die for.
