"Snorkelling paradise" Lifou by WOOFWOOF

Lifou Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 80 photos

The island of Lifou is a typical small Pacific island. It has a beautiful beach, an easy walk up to a derelict church on top of the hill with spectacular views across the island and the water.

What makes Lifou special however is its snorkelling. If you take the trouble to walk the relatively short distance to the back of the island you will discover a lagoon with hundreds of rocks just under the surface along with a vast array of corals. It is the fish however, that make this such a great snorkelling destination. These can be observed all throughout the lagoon but if you venture a little further out you will quickly come across the edge of the reef where there is a dramatic increase in water depth.

Here the number of fish also increases dramatically and if you are lucky you will see turtles that you swim alongside. A truly spectacular sight that our whole family enjoyed. Snorkelling at Lifou is spectacular.
