Must see · Beach · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Lagoon Beach is located in a semi-enclosed sheltered coral reef lagoon on the western coast of Lord Howe Island. This is the most accessible of the island’s eleven beaches, featuring white sands and smooth blue waters. At this location you can sail, windsurf, kite surf, kayak, or take leisurely boat trips along the coast. You can also choose from a number of inexpensive glass-bottom kayak and boat tours, which offer visitors a chance to see the lagoon’s well-known coral reef. Swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving are also popular at this beach, though many nature lovers and eco-tourists stop by just to see and photograph the lagoon’s unusual formations of stratified calcarenite.
