This was our 5th time at Lord Howe Island and Ned's Beach never fails to amaze me. The water is always crystal clear. You can buy some fish food and feed the fish, wonderful varities including Spangled Emperor, Wrasse, Whiting, Trevally, Mullet and many others. Whether your young or old its a place you got to see. Plenty of reef... More

Turtles were there on 2 days. The beach had great views and BBQ facilities.Our accommodation delivered BBQ meat, fish, salad and all the implements for eating and cooking. Made a great BBQ spot. From Ned's Beach, we walked up the walking trail towards Malabar Hill - fabulous 360 views of the island.

When southwest winds make the main lagoon too choppy, Ned's beach is the place to go. Coral a short way from the shore. Fish to feed (not catch) at the shore. BBQ's. A shed of hire gear for snorkelling etc.

It's a must visit when in LHI, although is the most busy beach in the island. You can rent wetsuit and snorkel gear which is nice as the water is a bit cold For $1 you can have fish food and feed the fishes but you will see lots of fishes in the morning anyways! no need to feed them,... More

Clear water, pristine beach, snorkel equipment available. You don't have to go into the water to see the fish. There are terns nesting in the grasses above the beach.

the beach has everything. It is well sheltered, great coral, fish that you feed from the shore, BBQ facilities, nesting birds, and good clean sand.

Fish swimming at your feet, colourful, healthy coral, very good visibility 12-15 metres, and I was lucky enough to swim with a small shark. When we were there birds and chicks were on the sand and near their burrows.

snorkelling by day, BBQing and watching the birds come in at sunset...great place. The honesty system is in place, which speaks volumes about this island.

Lovely long sandy beach with great snorkelling, the corals and fish were amazing and so close to the beach making it a perfect place for all ages and all levels of confidence. Some fish come right in to the really shallow water and you can almost touch them. Also a rocky area to wander over and rock pools to explore.... More
