This was the closest loction to Arajilla, and the one we enjoyed the most while staying there. You here it over and over again associated with the island, but it's so true, the water is crystal clear and so amazingly clear and clean.

Put on your bathing suit for this stunning swimming and snorkelling destination. The clear waters are a haven for fish as you swim amongst the worlds most southern coral reef

There is a swimming platform, and there are rocks a few hundred metres from shore that you can snorkel around. There are several boat sheds where you can hire kayaks, stand - up paddle boards etc. There are free BBQ's in... More

Just a lovely quiet spot to relax with a book for an hour or so. We just sat with friends and talked away the afternoon.

I found this lagoon to be some of the best snorkelling that I have ever done anywhere in the world as the waters were just so crystal clear and the coral reefs were still pristine and undamaged.

Very clear and calm water with limited access to the coral further out in the lagoon. You really need to go on the guided tour for snorkelling of the glass bottom boats to enjoy the lagoon to its full potential.

The protected reefs provide superb viewing from both glass bottom boats and by snorkeling. It may be difficult for many to swim from the beach, but inexpensive boat trips take you to the best locations. Apart from the colourful coral and fish, you may expect to see sharks, stingrays and turtles.

Lagoon Beach is the most idyllic beach I have ever had the fortune to visit. A long clean sandy beach with beautiful crystal clear waters. The lagoon is protected by an outer reef making it ideal for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, paddle boarding etc. Plenty of coral for viewing and abundance of fish, including turtles. To make it even better, there... More
