2Lord Howe Lagoon, Australia 

You will find this lovely lagoon on Lord Howe Island which is situated 600 kilometers east of Australia’s mainland. The island in the Tasman Sea is part of the state of New South Wales and is an abnormally crescent-shaped remnant. Experts state the Island is an exceptional example of an ecosystem born of underwater volcanic activity.  

Because it is obviously not part of the mainland, this attractive isle is home to a unique variety of flora and fauna. The lagoon itself is a semi-enclosed sandy sheltered coral reef located along the west coast. While tiger sharks have been reported off the cliff side of the island, there are no dangerous daytime sharks here or poisonous plants or snakes.
