This would have to one of the most beautiful unspoilt beaches left on the planet. The whitest of sands and the bluest water, the best bit , it is not crowded with people and it is spotlessly clean. There were many a time when we had the beach to ourselves ,truly a wonderful experience .

All the trips left from the shores of this beach such as deep see fishing trips, diving, snorkelling and coral viewing glass bottom boats.

Reminds me of the lagoons in Tahiti or Cook Islands. Beautiful. You can easily find your own spot on the beach. Cross Lagoon Road opposite the Museum and you have a great place for sunbathing and swimming with Mt Gower and Mt Lidgebird on your left.. Stunning

The snorkelling in the lagoon, the coral and the variety of fish. The bush walks through the palm trees. The weather and the warm water and the laid back environment

Hired a 2 person kayak for a couple of hours and enjoyed paddling about the lagoon. A little choppy but the kayak was very steady. We are a reasonably fit couple in our mid sixties well used to kayaking but a novice would feel safe. While paddling over the coral in Old Settlement Beach a turtle surfaced to add to... More

Snorkelling is superb from here and we loved Enrironmental tours friendly and knowledgable service to get us to the best sights. Didn't expect such varied and colourful coral and fish at LHI and so good to have so few other travellers around

Scenically beautiful (almost a cliche). Lovely for swimming. Kick off point for most water activities - kayaking, snorkel tours, round the island tour (usually).

Staying at Pine Trees Resort, made the Lagoon Beach an easy three minute walk from our room. Glorious sunsets, kayaking, swimming, snorkelling... and on and on. So much to do
