Five minutes and your swimming over coral

Stunning coral and tropical fish just a few minutes boat ride from the shore. Incredible and no coral bleaching.

A natural lagoon with coral, seagrass and lots of colourful and big and small fish. We saw a turtle and stingray. crystal clear water, you feel you have the beach and lagoon to yourself, it is never crowded. It overlooks the 2 mountains on the south of the island and you would think you are in the trpoics.

This beach is closest to the town centre, with BBQ's, seating, shade and hire shacks at hand. We took a kayak from here to Blackburn island and the turtle tour also runs from here. Long and clean this beach is great for relaxing and soaking up the atmosphere, a great view of the lagoon.

It is hard to ignore Lagoon Beach on Lord Howe Island as it totally dominates the scenic landscape together with the twin mounts that stride the southern end of the island. Lagoon Beach is situated towards the northern end of the island and is the main beach adjacent to the main settlement area and the 'main' street, Ned's Beach Road.... More

This is the main beach on the island and has the township adjacent. The boat sheds along the fore shore offer all types of activities or you can just relax on the golden sand. Lapping this beach are the calm waters of Lagoon Bay which is a large shallow bay protected by a line of reefs and sand bars so... More

Sit on the beach or choose one of the many activities. Beautiful clear water. Lovely views to the mountains. If the wind is from the west go to Neds Beach

Stunning scenery. Beautiful white sand and glorious water. Most of the water activities such as paddle boarding, kayaking and snorkelling and turtle tours leave from the boatsheds located on Lagoon Beach.
