This beach is just down the hill from Leanda-Lei Apartments. It is quite long and you can see both ends of the island from here. The sand is lovely to walk on and the is a foreshore walk just off the beach as well. You can see the waves breaking over the reef from here.

With 6 km long & relatively calm wave, this is a great spot for snorkeller & swimmer alike. Right in front of the main town of LHI. You can't miss it.

This is a lovely beach close to shops so you can have a coffee before or after your walk. It is also a lovely place to swim.

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.

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.
